And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBDSLC146 Silver Anniversary

Welcome to another Shining the light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!  Time flies by so's hard to believe that Our Daily Bread Designs is celebrating five wonderful years already!

This week's challenge is:
Make an Anniversary Card with Silver 

Since this week marks the 5th Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs and the gift for a fifth year anniversary is silverware, we would like to see your anniversary cards with silver on it.

To make the challenge more fun, we will be out a PRIZE, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!!  Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, March 17th at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced next Sunday.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.  As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more participants to receive the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award; however, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, March 17th at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC146.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.

Here is what I created for the Silver Anniversary Challenge:

Creative Nugget:  I knew I wanted to use this newly released Happy Marriage Recipe for my card so it was stamped in Smokey Shadow ink on a Labels Eight Die.  The intertwining heart wreath is from the Love One Another set and was clear embossed over the recipe.  A little sponging made the wreath pop a little. The border was created with a border punch and attached to a square Solar Crest card base.  The silver DP was stitched to the front of the card.  A sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set was masked so that only the Happy Anniversary part was stamped on the banner die.  Fanciful Flourish Dies, ribbon, paper flower, stick pins, pearls, and a charm were used to embellish the card.

The Our Daily Bread stamp sets used to create this card are Happy Marriage Recipe, All Occasion Sentiments, and Love one Another!
