ODBDSLC67..Red, white, blue

Hello and good morning my stamping friends!! It is Saturday and time for a new Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs. Chris, the wonderful Challenge Team Coordinator is challenging us this week to focus on the colors "red, white and blue"!! You can use other colors but those three need to be the main focus. I know I am not officially a member of the Challenge Team anymore, but I can't get enough of these awesome challenges I asked permission to keep participating as a regular so to speak, so all of you will have just that one more inspiration card, LOL!

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 14. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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 14at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC67.When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge

For my sample this week I've used a set just released last week called "Sweet William small", the small stands for regular size words actually as there is also a set that focuses more on Scrapbooking and those blooms  are larger. Anyhow, have a look and see how I have tied the Sweet William flower into the red, white and blue challenge


Paper:  PTI White, Poppy Red, Prima Reflections

Stamps: ODBD Sweet William small

Ink: ODBD Steel Blue, Palette Moulin Rouge

Accessories: Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Motifs, Cheery-Lyn-Designs French Pastry doily die and Exotic Butterflies small, Bohemia rhinestones in blue, white and red lace from my stash

What do you think? I'd like to know what you think about my interpretation  of the "red, white and blue". 
If you should need some more inspiration make sure you'll head on over to see what




and Pat
