ODBD die sets: Apothecary Bottles; Ornate Borders and Flowers
Well, I had my post almost completely typed up when it disappeared into cyberspace somewhere!!! So, here we go again!  
I am so excited to share this first Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD), Shining the Light challenge of the year!! The challenge is to use the formula-2014 numbers, as in: 2 pearls, 0 ribbon, 1 embossing folder and 4 rhinestones (that is the formula for this card).  You may choose anything you'd like using those numbers...2 images, 2 embossing get the picture!
For more inspiration, please visit my VERY talented design team sisters:
To see all the creations in one place or to join the challenge, click HERE.
You have until January 12th 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 (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).  We would love to see your creations.
For my card today, I used the new Apothecary Bottles stamp set and coordinating dies, The Joy in a Jar stamp set and the Ornate Borders and Flowers stamp set and dies.
Other dies used are from Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn Designs.
The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.  You can also visit my post called ODBD- Apothecary Bottles for another sample of the labels and bottles.
I hope you enjoy these new sets as much as I have.  They are full of cheer and kind words to send out to family and friends!!  Remember, kind words go a long way and will last in the memory! Lift someone's spirit.
