ODBDSLC55, C4C81 Sing to the Lord....and more!!!

Happy weekend everyone!

Hope you are having a good one so far? I'll be chillin' this weekend...and finally enjoying some nice weather again!!! I'm excited to tell you that April is gonna be a fun stampin' month for me and you will see some of the exciting news starting tomorrow!

Today starts a new challenge month over at the Crazy for Challenge blog. Silke Kittman is hosting and she has a fun Sketch for you to try this week. Make sure to swing by the C4C81 post to see all the cards the Crazies have made :) !!!


My card also features the ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC55. This weeks challenge is to *Use a bird image, punched bird, or birds on your designer paper*. Have fun playing!

Here is my take on both challenges.....




I used the beautiful Sing to the Lord Set. This was actually one of my very first ODBD Sets I bought and fell in love with....definitely an oldtime favorite!!! The Psalm was inked onto a Spellbinder Die. The DP is from the old SU Groovy Guava Collection. The image itself was inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic MarkersB0000, B00, B02, Y19, YR000, YR00, YR02, YR12. The Border was created with a MS Punch. I added a round doily in the background. The rest of my card was embellished with some scoring, some matching Groovy Guava Ribbon, Glitter, a ButtonSilver Pearls and some Silver Cord.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the ODBDSLC team and their take on this weeks challenge ~ Sabrina, Chris, FranciePat and our Guest Designer Lori.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today :) !!! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again tomorrow!!! Hugs ~S~
