Good morning on this beautiful Saturday.....

my stamping friends!!! Are you ready for ODBD's Shining the Light Challenge # 8? Oh my goodness, do we have a good one for you today!!! Since the day before yesterday was April Fools Day, we are challenging you to use stitching on your card or for April Fools use Faux stitching!! I did get my machine to cooperate with me for 2 minutes and got some stitching on the card I am going to share with you all. I have been trying hard not too go overboard and so I made a CAS card....really not much going on, but I chose some really cool paper by S.e.i. called Jocelyn. Have a look and see for yourself.

The Flowers appear......

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, S.e.i. Jocelyn

Stamps: ODBD The Lord has Risen

Ink: Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye, Memento Rich Cocoa

Accessories: Nesties Classic Scallop Squares Large, Classic Squares large, crochet lace (Joann's) velvet ribbon (sewed on the lace ;D) Ashland Daisy, MayaRoad chip board bird sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Autumn Leaves, Recollections golden half pearl, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, sewing machine,

See, a pretty CAS card, not much going on. I was trying to keep it CAS as the paper is a little busy with the different patterns on it, but I think it works. IRL the paper has an amazing shimmer to it...the big flower is almost the exact same color as the yellow on the card.

If you have played with us before you already know that we have a prize waiting for one of the entries...if this is your first time playing along with us here is what we do: To make this challenge a little more fun for all of you, we are giving away a $ 15.00 gift certificate to be used towards stamps from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store !!
