ODBDSLC218 - Blessings Word Challenge

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to make a card using 4 letters from the word BLESSINGS.  Join us here for all of the details.

For the word challenge I chose the following letters: 

B: Branch
E: Embossing (heat)
S: Silver
S: Star

I heat embossed the ODBD Wisemen Ornament and layered it on silver metalic branches from the Fancy Foliage die set, the background paper is from the Winter Paper Collection.  I cut out the star dies in silver metalic, dark blue and white, embossing the white layer and using the blue layer for a shadow.

ODBD Stamps Used:  Wisemen Ornament
ODBD Papers Used: Winter Collection 2014

Other Supplies: foam tape, heat embossing, Stampin Up markers, water pen, satin ribbon.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
