ODBD Heart and Soul paper collection
Oh my goodness, I LOVE these new heart stamps and dies!!! They are gorgeous!  I like all the colors that have been done with them as well...go check out my design team sister's blogs! Wow!!
The Shining the Light challenge is week is a WORD recipe.  You need to use things on your card that start with the letters, L-O-V-E.  Today my card recipe is L=lovely paper lace, O=octagon frame, V= Valentine sentiment and E= embossing (bottom part of the card).
I threaded ribbon through the holes of the paper lace, sewed around the edges, popped up the octagon frame, added a little metal key to the heart and Liquid Pearls-white around the flowers and flourishes.  I tied little knots in the ribbon going through the sentiment tag and added a ribbon bow under the flowers. I used the Bless Your Heart stamp set, the Fancy Foliage Die set, the Ornate Heart die set, and the Beautiful Borders die set.
For more inspiration please visit my sister designers:
To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until February 9th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) stamps we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have a 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.
"Create in me a clean heart oh Lord"
