It is time again......

for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge # 23. This week the Challenge Team has a good one for you.

The Challenge is to

use a ribbon and charm and one other embellishment- but no flower embellishments unless it is your charm.

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, August 5. 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 August 5 at 8 p.m. EST.

If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC23. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

My version of this weeks challenge is VERY CAS, yes, very Clean And Simple. You all know how much I love embellishments of any kind and for me the rule is usually "the more the better" ;D, so this weeks challenge was a challenge indeed for me,LOL!!

Are you ready?

Psalm 34:4


Paper: PTI Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, Basic Grey Wisteria

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Series 1 Psalm 34:4

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

Accessories: Nesties Classic Cirlce Large, Classic Scalloped Circle Large, brown grosgrain ribbon 7/8" wide, antique brass cross charm I found while on vacation at Hobby Lobby for 50% off......SCORE!!!!
hand dyed Dew Drops

What do you think? I tell you, it was hard not putting any flowers on my card, but I am happy with the way it turned out. I think this card could easily pass as a masculine card or for someone that does not like a lot of embellishments ;D.

Would you like to see what the rest of the Challenge Team whipped up? Here are the links to my ever so talented sisters in Christ





Well, this is it for me for today, my girls have a Birthday Pool Party to go to (I hope and pray the weather holds up, we are supposed to have a 60% chance of rain, yikes) .

Before you leave I'd love to hear what you think about my card. Your comments mean a lot to me and surely keep me going :D.

Have a blessed and very creative weekend!!!

This must have been a real challenge for you indeed, no flowers!?! You did a fabulous job with your CAS, (did you hyperventilate?). I'm grinning here, 'joshing' you a little! I like your blog look, in case I forgot to tell you already.

Your card is beautiful Sabrina. I do think that this could be a card for a man. I love the cross that you used as your embellishment.

I hope it does not rain so that your girls can go to the pool party and have lots of fun.
