ODBDSLC47 Happy One Year Anniversary!

Welcome to the ODBD Shining Light Challenge!

Today we are celebrating our first Anniversary...yeah!!!

Chris thought of a very fun task for you to do...choose any of the top 10 Challenges from the first year to create your easy is that???

Here are the Challenges from the past:

ODBDSLC22 - Distress it
ODBDSLC26 - Dies and Punches
ODBDSLC27 - Texture it
ODBDSLC28 - Forgotten Embellishments
ODBDSLC29 - Sparkle
ODBDSLC31 - Wing it
ODBDSLC32 - Leaves
ODBDSLC33 - Charm it
ODBDSLC34 - Three of Something
ODBDSLC43 - Something new something old

Here is my take on it ~ I added distressing, dies, forgotten embellishement, sparkle, wing it, something new something old ~ to my card.

My inspiration for this card came from this weeks VLVFeb Sketch. I used the beautiful Faith Set and the brand new to me Butterfly Corner. The images were inked in Memento Black and the butterfly was colored with Copic Markers. The edges of the Kraft CS were distressed. The DP is from the SU Poppy Parade Print Designer Collection. My forgotten embellishment is the matching PTI Berry Sorbet Ribbon and Button! My sparkles were sprayed on with the Iridescent Glimmer Mist. Of course I have to mention the fabbo Spellbinder Dies....I love the Beaded Circle one the most :) !!!

Now it's time to check out the rest of the Shining Light Team ~ Sabrina, Chris, Francie and Pat.

Please check out on how to play along and what the rules are at this blog post ODBDSLC47!!!

Thank you for swinging by today!!! Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon:) !!! Hugs ~S~
