Hello everyone! This week's Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) is to create a card using Pink, Ivory and Tan.  
I've created this card on a base of tan, then using the Vintage Flourish Pattern die, I cut an ivory panel.  I used pre-emboss pink paper to cut the elegant oval (Spellbinders) then used the inside dies from Vintage Flourish Pattern die set to cut another tan layer.  The bird (my favorite) and blossoms ivory panel was cut from the nesting ovals and the "out of the box" technique for his tail feathers. The bird is from Sing to the Lord stamp set and the blossoms on top plus the words are from the new June release, Cherry Blossoms.
I added Tan satin ribbon to the ivory die cut before laying it down then glued a piece of ivory lace to it.  I sewed around the edges catching the lace with a zig-zag stitch.  After all layers were down I used a couple of glue dots to adhere my triple loop bow and I used Liquid Pearls on the Stamen of the flowers.
You can find the stamps and dies I used by clicking on the sets below.
ODBD stamps used: Cherry Blossom and Sing to the Lord
ODBD dies used: Vintage Flourish Pattern
To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until June 15th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any ODBD stamps we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have the chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (Shining the Light Award is only for those who have used ODBD stamps).  We would love to see your creations.
