ODBDSLC218 - Blessings Word Challenge Week 2

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: Baby
L: Lace
E: Embossing (heat & dry)
S: Star

I heat embossed the ODBD Mother & Child and Snowflake Stars and layered the nativity on a die from the Quatrefoil die set, the background paper is from the Christmas Paper Collection.  Lace made with the Beautiful Borders die set was added along the bottom.

ODBD Papers Used: Christmas Collection 2014

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

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