Two sketches for fun! MMSC56 & ODBDSL16

Hello everyone! I have a double post for you today! My first card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge#56. I LOVED this sketch! I had so much fun with this and I LOVE this new BG paper! I used the fancy option of the sketch but just didn't use the ribbon slides, so I guess I went half way in the middle. I used the new Our Daily Bread designs Scripture Series 1 for the verse stamped in VersaFine, then I stamped the Fleur de Lis Border set to stamp my border in Mellow Moss. I cut that panel with Nellies Multi Frames and then Spellbinder's Label 3. Base is Mellow Moss, mat is Very Vanilla, then BG Capella dp! O how I love this pack!!! My center strip is Very Vanilla run through the Bug and then sponged with MM, as are all the layers. The Green lace is a RAK from my sweet friend Pat (thanks a million time sweetie!) and the cream lace is K&Co. I added a couple cream buttons, and I popped up all the layers, so this will have to go in a box!

My second card is for today's Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge. and we have some extra inspiration this week, as some of the Design Team are being spotlighted as well as our talented Challenge Team!

This week the challenge team is challenging you to a sketch:

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, June 10. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by June 10 at 8 p.m. EST.
