ODBDSLC79, JUGS49, CQC105 Seed of Friendship...

Happy weekend!

It's time for a new ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC79. This weeks challenge is to create your own embellishment.



I created my own ribbon flower with some Cotton Trim from Walmart. I simply pulled & sewed the middle together and added a SU Antique Brad in the center...voila! 

Here is how my card came together. I really liked the beautiful JUGS104 Anniversary Sketch and the color inspiration came from this weeks Color Q #105.



The sentiment I used on the card is from the ODBD The Good Seed Set. The pretty DP in the background is from the BasicGrey Indie Bloom Collection. I also added some pretty flourished ZVA Pearls in the background, a punched out border on the bottom and on the side. Plus some Brown Satin Ribbon, Button, Scrapper's Floss and some larger Halfback Pearls.

As always, please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Sabrina, FrancieLoriPatChris and our new October/November Guest Designer Sue Worthington.

Have a fabulous weekend and I hope to see you soon again!

Hugs ~Silke~

Your handmade lace flower is fabulous, as is that yummy chocolate bow! I love the elegance of this card, and that little bit of border peeking out on the right side of the card finishes it off perfectly. ~Hugs, Cheryl
