ODBDSLC #63


Hello friends! Today I'm posting a card for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge #63. If you're a blog regular, you know it's one of my favorite challenges to participate in! This week's instructions were to use a sentiment only, no stamped images. I had this cheery paper from DCWV that I've been dying to use, and . . . do you keep an idea book? You know, something you can carry with you to jot down those ideas that just pop into your head at the strangest times? I started carrying one in 10th grade, when I was obsessed with sketching. Now my book is a mish mash of card sketches, embellishment ideas, challenges, color combos, and what appear to be random words strung together (what did I mean by, "violet lighty salsa stripe?" Lighty isn't even a word!) Well, I must have a million sketches in there and for this card I did something I'm proud of . . . I actually used one to make a card! I'm not saying it's super unique. I'm not saying it's the breakthrough of the century. But I did come up with it my own self, write it down, and then come back and use it months later. I feel so grown up, LOL! Before I list the details, I want to mention that the green spotted-looking paper behind the sentiment circle is glittery IRL. It's sooo pretty! But the glitz doesn't want to show up in a picture, so I am pointing it out because I am OCD that way. :-D

Gorgeous card. Love the sentiment. I keep a pad next to my computer and often do not understand what I wrote. Tried bookmarking, now into Pinterest. Everything in one place, at least if it's on the internet. Everyday sightings? Little bits of paper in my purse, often lost. Again, fabulous card!!
