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)

ODBDSLC160 Patriotic or Red White, and Blue

Welcome everyone, and a happy Tuesday to you all!  Looks like rain is in our forecast for most of the week, so I'll probably be spending a lot of time inside!  If that's true for you as well, and even if it's not, come join us for the Shining the Light Challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog and have some fun working with red, white, and blue!
This week's challenge is:
Patriotic or Red, White, & Blue
This will be a two week challenge.

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, July 7 at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced with the next challenge.  In order to win this prize, you do not need to use ODBD stamps, but if you have them, we would love to see 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, July 7 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.  Thank you!  We love seeing your creations!

Before I post my card for this week's challenge, I have some exciting news!  While I will be participating in the challenges from time to time, I will no longer be on the Challenge Team...but will be moving to the Design Team!
   Now...onto my card for this week!

Our Daily Bread Designs, Not Forgotten
Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made by distressing and stitching three panels, one from Fab Scraps, one from embossed Rustic White, and one from The Paper Loft, to Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy card stocks and then attaching it to a Rustic White card front.  The main image from the Not Forgotten stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy and cut with an A2 Matting Basics Die by Spellbinders.  A little sponging and distressing was done to age the panel.  The postal mark in the corner was white embossed on Night of Navy card stock and popped onto the card.  The banner was cut with a square punch and the sentiment from the same set stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The star stickers, which were gold, were colored with a Copic Marker and added to finish the card.

This wonderful patriotic stamp set is available at the 

For more gorgeous Red, White, and Blue inspiration, be sure to check in with the rest of the talented Challenge Team Sisters.  Be sure to leave some love on their blogs, especially for Kathy Roney who will be stepping down from the team. We have enjoyed seeing her creations each week for the past year and she will be greatly missed!

Hope to see you over at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog for ODBDSLC160!

Something is vaguely familiar about this card! (Tee hee) Love your use of the stamp set and star and stripes, both in the paper, the embossing folder and the embellishments. Love that banner yet waving! Hugs and blessings! Congratulations on your move to the Design Team!! Woo Hoo, you go girlfriend!!
