     Welcome!  We're continuing the biweekly challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs with a photo challenge.  Here again are the photos you can chose from.

This week I went with the pumpkin photo.
ODBD, Pumpkin, Pumpkin die, Doily die, designer Linda Carson
     As you can see I chose the Pumpkin image with the Pumpkin die.  I really love this pumpkin with its huge leaves.  I added dimension by coloring a second set of leaves and popped them up using 3-D Silicone.  It's also called Scrap Dots and comes in a tube.  Using this product you can adjust the height to your preference instead of pop dots.  It's great for smaller items.    
     I embossed the Doily die behind the pumpkin.  The rest are embellishments of stitching, burlap ribbon, twine and a button.  It's a hard/soft take on the photo
     Now it's time for you to visit the rest of the Challenge Team for more inspiration:        

       To see all the projects created for ODBDSLC214 or to join the challenge click here. You have until October 5th at 8:00pm EDT to enter.
     ODBD will have a new release and blog hop tomorrow!!  Exciting! Join us!  You'll find the details on the ODBD blog.
     Thanks so much for visiting today!!  Have a wonderful day!!
