This week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge is a sketch challenge based on one of Lori Ulrich's cards (had to include it in this post...isn't it stunning?)! I had fun with this one and hope you'll join in as well! I used papers from the Lost & Found Two "Blush" pad by My Mind's Eye...distressing the edges and adding some stitching. I fussy cut the 2 bees, but the new die which coordinates with the clover image makes it a breeze to "cut" out!
You'll want to check out the other Challenge Team members' gorgeous creations...
