Psalm 36:5

     Welcome to Tuesday's Shining the Light challenge with Our Daily Bread Designs!  This week's challenge is called Secret Admirer.  We want you to CASE someone you admire or a card you've always wanted to CASE. 
     I chose to CASE this card by ODBD designer Cathy McCauley.

       Cathy's blog is Golden Inkspirations.  She creates beautiful artwork with beautiful details!
     Here is my card:

Linda Carson, ODBD
     Cathy used solid colors plus an extra layer of paper.  I used a mixture of patterns.  She did a zigzag stitch on one side of her card and I went with only straight stitching.  O.k., maybe it's not straight....but it's suppose to be!
     The stamps Cathy and I used are from the Faith set.  I used the Butterfly Branch die, Beautiful Border die and the Quatrefoil die.
     I hope Cathy likes it as much as I enjoyed CASing it!
       For more inspiration on this challenge please visit these creative ladies from the challenge team,

If you participate, you have a  chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be Spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).

     Have a wonderful day!
