ODBDSLC72, C4C100 Thank you....

Happy weekend you all!

Can you believe we have reached almost the mid of the month again??? How can this be....??? Since it's Saturday again, I have the pleasure of showing you a new card!!! This weeks Crazy 4 Challenges is celebrating their 100th Challenge...yeah...and we are challenging you to *Monochromatic Coloring*.
Make sure to swing by the  C4C Blog to read all about this challenge and to see all the beautiful designs the *Crazies* have waiting for you.

Next, is this weeks ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC72....we want you to *ADD A TAG*. We don't want to see just a tag, we want to see a tag added to your card or 3D project.



I inked up a new set that I received a couple of days ago....the beautiful Serve the Lord. Of course I used the matching Crocheted Circle Die with it :) !!! The image itself was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ YR0000, E25, E27. My corrugated background was *edge distressed* with a White Ink Pad. The rest of my card was embellished with a tag, ribbon, bling, antique brad and the sentiment.

Hope you have a chance to join us for this weeks challenges?!? For more inspiration please stop by the rest of the ODBD team ~ Sabrina, Francie, Chris, Lori and Pat.

Have a wonderful weekend,

                                                        HUGS,  ~Silke~
