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)

ODBDSCL219 Color Block Sled

Hello friends...hope you had a wonderful weekend.  One of my favorite challenges is the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  I learn so much from CASE-ing all of the talented stampers that are chosen for this honor. Yesterday's featured stamper was Sara Hoogendoorn and I found her Sympathy card to CASE.  Since the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge was to create a Christmas card using ODBD stamps, her sympathy card was turned into this Christmas card:

Creative Nugget: The beautiful sled image from the new Let It Snow stamp set released by Our Daily Bread Designs earlier this month was simply stamped on a panel of Neehah Solar Crest card stock.  The graduated color block panel was sponged with different hues of blue and purple Memento inks before stamping the sled again to match up with the sled stamped on the Neenah panel thus highlighting only a portion of the sled.  Acrylic paint splatters and Shimmer Mist create a snowy background for the sled.  The gold jingle bells were embossed to make them white and were hung from the greenery on the sled image along with a metallic thread bow.  I found a pretty Christmas sentiment in the Poinsettia Wreath stamp set that fit the small space on my card.  A bow and some rhinestones finish the card for a CAS look.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Splitcoaststampers - FS409
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge - ODBDSLC219 
     Christmas With ODBD Stamps
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #161 Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #86

Thanks so much for stopping by…only 17 more days until Christmas!

Oh, Cathy, you're right about learning from CASEing. I need to do more myself. I just love how you've used this great sled image and love the graduated color block. And I love the snowy background. Stunning card, as always, and it's wonderful to have you support us at the Shining the Light challenge! We so appreciate seeing your beautiful work! Hugs, sweet friend!
