A Day For Moms

It's a day for Mom's at Our Daily Bread Designs!  Today the Shining the Light Challenge Team has created cards or projects for Mother's Day and we invite you to get a head start on your Mother's Day creations too!  Here's my contribution today



Wouldn't a wreath or table centerpiece look beautiful for a Mother's Day present?  I used this new Happy Mother's Day set from ODBD and colored it up to match my Kioshi paper using my Prismacolor pencils.  It has a very spring feel with the papers, lots of spring greens and softly colored flowers.  I added the sentiment from the set in vellum inside the oval, so you could still see some of the color through the paper. 



So make sure you join us in the challenge this week!  Link at the ODBD Blog and if you're using online galleries use the keyword ODBDSLC11.  Just a reminder this challenge will go for TWO weeks because next Saturday is a New Release day with the Design Team.  Winners each week earn a gift certificate to the ODBD store!  Fantastic! 

Now you'll want to visit my team sisters to see their beautiful creations for Mother's Day too:
