ODBD Shining the Light Challenge - Graduation


Today on the Our Daily Bread designs blog is a new Shining The Light challenge, hosted by our talented Challenge Team. This week's challenge is to make a graduation card, using ODBD stamps if you have them. I have used the new ODBD set, "For The Graduate".....I just love this scene and this verse from Proverbs is one of my faves! I know....this card is a little plain, but I really don't like to "over-do" cards for guys, plus I'm not as good at creating "guy cards" as most of our team is! (Help!)

Over at Splitcoast today, the Inspiration Challenge is to choose an item from the Huset store....I chose this cup and saucer....looked like the (tiny and hard to color) leaves on the scene from the "For the Graduate" set. The challenge over at Pile It On this week is to use "boyish colors"....done!!

This week's featured artist for Case Artist Saturday over at Christian Paper Crafts is Rose Miller....yay, Rose!!! Check out her gallery HERE. I chose this awesome card because I loved the layout and the three flowers at the top....once I got started, I changed gears right in the middle and flipped the sketch on its side and used a knot instead of flowers.

Speaking of Christian Paper Crafts, stay tuned on Wednesday for a Blog Hop by our CPC Design Team, sponsored by the Magenta company. Magenta has generously donated product for our DT to play with......some very cool stuff you don't want to miss!!! The hop will start at Christian Paper Crafts at 10 am EST !

Happy Mother's Day for all you moms out there!!! Have a blessed weekend!!!
