ODBD Shining the Light Challenge - Think Pink!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today I would like to share with you a card I made for this week's Shining the Light Challenge at the Our Daily Bread designs blog.

This week's challenge, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is to create a Pink project. You do not have to make a cancer-themed project, but it must be pink and include an encouraging sentiment or scripture verse.

For my sample, I have used the "Christmas Rose" stamp, colored with SU markers and ink pads(with sponge daubers), then cut out with paper snips and an exacto knife, popped up with foam tape over an "Elegant Oval Frames" border (stamped using the rock-n-roll technique with Caramel and pink ), which was matted with a die from the "ODBD Elegant Oval" set. The scripture verse from "Christmas Door" was stamped directly onto the Memory Box "Mistletoe" designer paper. The May Arts crocheted lace bow was tied using a Bow Easy tool. Several sprays of "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist was added for a sparkly finish.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Christmas Rose', 'Christmas Door', and 'Elegant Oval Frames';
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, SU Creamy Caramel, Rose Romance, Old Olive;
Cardstock: SU Rose Romance and Very Vanilla;
Designer Paper: Memory Box 'Mistletoe';
Accessories: Bow Easy, Elegant Ovals Dies, May Arts Crocheted Lace, CM Corner Rounder, 'Irridescent Gold' Glimmer Mist, Gemstones by Nestabling, Paper Piercer and template, sponge daubers, foam tape, Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner (to stamp the scripture straight on the dsp.);
Size: 5-1/2 square.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!
