Our Daily Bread 2nd Anniversary Challenge #3!

Are you having fun with the ODBD Anniversary challenges? I hope so! Today brings another very fun challenge! Silver and gold are the traditional gifts for those special milestones in a marriage--the 25th and 50th anniversaries. Today's challenge is to make a project that includes silver and/or gold. For all of the details on the challenge and to submit your entry, be sure to see the ODBD blog post here. And entries must be received by 8 p.m. EST tonight!

My card for the challenge uses the ODBD set called Lift Up Your Hands. In February, we lost two family members in the same week. One of them was my uncle. This card is going to my aunt. I chose to use a silver cross charm, silver Stickles on the embossed parts of the photo corners, and lastly, I used silver embossing powder on the stamped image. The bling kind of looks silvery too so maybe it will count also. LOL! Papers: Bazzill, Webster's Pages Petite Papers Magical Wishes & A Sweet Life, Creative Memories CS
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Lift Up Your Hands
Stamp Ink: VersaMark, Stampin' Up pale plum, misc. silver EP
Embellishments: Ribbon Retreat ribbon, cross charm from Hobby Lobby, misc. safety pin, Prima crystals, sewing machine, Stickles silver,
Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Pendants, Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle

And remember, there is hidden blog candy out there somewhere on a few of our blogs. You won't know which blog has the candy so be sure to leave comments on all of them! You might just be a lucky winner! Have fun with the challenge, and make sure you get your entries posted to the ODBD blog by tonight. Lastly, be sure to use Keyword ODBD2AC3 in online galleries. Blessings,
