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)

ODBDSLC145 Children's Prayer

Welcome to a new Shining the Light Challenge!  If you love encouraging others with the cards you make, this week's challenge is just for you!
This week's challenge is:
Use a Prayer, Blessing, or Encouraging Scripture

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, June 9 at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced 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, June 9th 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!

Here's my card for ODBD145:

Creative Nugget:  I just love this praying darling from the Precious Girl stamp set just released by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Gingham background was stamped on a panel, stitched to Pretty in Pink card stock, and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  The praying girl image was stamped three times, twice on Solar Crest and once on a scrap stamped with the Gingham Background.  The first image was cut out-of-the-box with a Classic Circle Nestie. The second image was colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and mounted on the first one.  On the third image, only the dress was fussy cut and mounted on the second one...lots of dimension here. The little prayer from the Children's Prayers stamp set was stamped and cut with a Labels Four Die and mounted to a Gold Lables Four Die in Pretty in Pink.  A couple Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourishes, mulberry flowers, and a silk bow finish the card.

Several supplies used to make this card are available at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!

My Challenge Team Sisters have more fabulous samples for this week's encouraging ODBDSLC145.  Be sure to check them out and leave a little love behind.  Looking forward to seeing your creations over on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog!
