Ready set go.........

for a new Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge! Today we are challenging you to use those "Forgotten Embellishments". You know we all have them...eyelets, brads, tons of buttons that we bought but never really used. Well, today you can get them out and use them. :D:D

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, September 9. 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 September 9 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC26. When creating your posts on blogs please include a DIRECT link to the challenge.

All right, are you ready to see what I came up with? I have to tell you, I had tons of brads and eyelets, but I gave most of those to my oldest DD, who is 9 y.o. and loves card making almost as much as her mommy ;D;D, but I also had A TON of buttons. I very, very rarely use buttons on my cards, ever so often when I made a masculine one, so I got my bag of PTI buttons out and went for it,hehe. Wanna see?
