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)

ODBDSLC148 He Is Risen

I'm not sure where last week went, but here it is Tuesday again, and time for another Shining the Light Challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  With Easter only five days away, this week's challenge will give you a chance to get those last minute Easter cards finished!

This week the challenge is:
He is Risen with Pastels
Make a project or card displaying a cross, verse, or sentiment about the true meaning of Easter (not commercialized...bunnies...).  This challenge will last two weeks!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving 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, April 7 at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

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 of our participants for 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, April 7 at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC148.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.

For my card, I used the He Is Risen Stamp Set.

Creative Nugget: The verse was stamped on a Classic Oval Nestie and the cross was then very lightly overstamped.  A little piercing was done before mounting the panel on Opulent Oval Dies.  This was adhered to an embossed panel, some patterned paper, and finally to a Solar Crest card base.  The sentiment was cut with a Fancy Framed Tag Die and ribbon, a flower and pearls were added to finish this pastel Easter card!

Please join us this week at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog...can't wait to see your beautiful creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a blessed day!
