Mother and Child

     Hello again!  We're continuing on with our biweekly challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs.  It's Anything Goes using only ODBD images. 
ODBD, Mother and Child, Midnight Clear, Matting Circles die, Fancy Foliage die, designer Linda Carson
     Again I chose to use the background stamp A Midnight Clear.  It's a beautiful image, versatile and looks good stamped on patterned paper. I paired the background with the Mother and Child ornament.
     The ornament was cut using the new Matting Circles dies.  I then used embossing powder to enhance the image.  The ornament is hanging from a sprig using Fancy Foliage die.
     Please visit the other designers on the Challenge Team for more inspiration.
   To see all the projects created for ODBDSLC215, to join the challenge and see the rules click here. You have until October 19th at 8:00pm EDT to enter.
     In case you missed it yesterday there was an ODBD mid-month release.  You still have time to blog hop for prizes. The artwork of the design team is absolutely gorgeous!
     Also, you can now pre-order the November release bundle.  Get the details on the ODBD blog.


     Hope you'll join in the challenge!  Have a wonderful day!!
