I am back.......

from my mini vacation and ready to show you what this weeks Shining the Light Challenge 22 is all about!!!





The team would like you to distress it. You can use ink, tearing, or ripping...whatever it takes to give a distressed look somewhere on your creation.





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 Thursday, July 29. 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 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by July 29 at 8 p.m. EST





Now, are you ready to see what I came up with? For those of you that know me, I love distressing and do it ALL the time!!! :D:D:D





Trust in the Lord



Recipe:

Paper: PTI Kraft, Ripe Avocado, K&Company Life's Journey

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 2

Ink: ODBD Olive, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Antique Linen

Accessories: Nesties Labels 3+5, mini paper roses (not Prima) , Zva Creative pearl flourish in Taupe Antique brass heart button, hand dyed seam binding, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, foam tape

So, what do you think? I think I really like the way it turned out...the seam binding has a little shimmer to it (I've used Glimmer Mist) to dye it and it works so nicely. A little tip, I bought two kinds of seam binding...one is a no name and it sucks....really, when it gets wet it kind of separates and gets not so nice looking. I also used some Hug n' Snug and it works awesome!!!! I will not try to save $ 1.00and go with just Hug n' Snug now, LOL!!!! You can buy it directly at http://www.zipperstop.com/ or go on eBay and search Hug n' Snug seam binding. It is tons of fun (and a little messy) to get all the different colors dyed, but it is so gorgeous when you are done. I have used Glimmer Mist, re-inkers and black tea....awesome results with all three choices!!!

All right, would you like to get some more inspiration? My design sisters have outdone themselves once again....we even have a scrapbook layout...how awesome is that? So why don't you leave me some love ;D;D and head on over to

Sabrina so sorry I have not been around the past couple weeks but between 10 days of vacation and then the grands coming I have had NO time to keep up with comments~ But that sure is no reflection on how beautiful this card is!

So elegant and beautiful! You just rock the beautiful card category, Sabrina.

Sarah said...

OMG- I just LOVE this card!! It is absolutely beautiful! The first thing I wanted to know when I saw this was what the gorgeous ribbon was. Seam binding, huh? Just when I thought I might actually have enough ribbon and trim... hahaha, I guess that will never be the case! Thanks so much for enabling me with all the info. I am guessing you just buy white or beige and then ink it up. How fun!!!
