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)

ODBDSLC153 SPRING Word Challenge

Hello Friends!  It's Tuesday so I hope you are ready for a new Shining the Light Challenge.  It's finally beginning to feel like least in the northeast!   This week we are going to think Spring.  Maybe this will bring some of that spring-like weather to our friends in the mid west!

This week's challenge is:
Spring Word Challenge
Use four letters in the word Spring for your ingredients on your card or project.  Please write the letters and the items you used in your post.

Example: S-Scripture, P-Pearls, R-Ribbon, I-Ink, N-Nestabilities, G-Green

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, May 12 at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced with the next challenge.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments, 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, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, May 5 at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC152.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.  Thanks you!  We love seeing your creations!

This is how the word SPRING was used on my card:
S=Scripture/Stitching, P=Pearls, R=Ribbon, I=Insects/Ink, N=Notebook Paper, G=Green

Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Country Garden Paper Collection by Bo Bunny were stitched to True Black card stock and a Vintage Cream card base.  The panels were separated by a Fiskars Border Punch and some black wrinkled ribbon.  The sentiment from the Faith stamp set was stamped on a coordinating piece of DP and punched to make it look like a piece of notebook paper.  The butterfly branch from the Faith stamp set was stamped on Solar Crest paper, colored with Copic Markers, and cut with the matching Butterfly Branch Die.  A few pearls and a wrinkled ribbon bow finish the card which will be given to a friend of mine who is in the hospital.

Supplies used on this card that are available from Our Daily Bread Designs include the Faith stamp set and the Butterfly Branch Die.

I hope you will be able to join us this week for the SPRING Shining the Light Challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  If you need more ideas for using the letters in the word SPRING for the supplies on your card, check out my Challenge Team sisters.  They have created fabulous samples for your inspiration!

and our guest designer again this month is Gloria Stengel
