Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge (SNTODBD21)!  The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge is to use your favorite embellishment.  There are so many embellishments to play with and use on our cards, but to pick just one that is your absolute favorite can be difficult.  Now, more embellishments can be used on your card or project, but you need to make it obvious that the one product that is your favorite one is used most! We would love to see what you create using Our Daily Bread Design stamps!

For my card I am using ODBD Our Daily Bread  Christmas Verses stamp set. I kept my card pretty clean and simple to make it obvious which embellishment is my favorite.  I know I really heart my honking bows, but my first love is the half back pearls.  Preferably the gold ones, but I do use silver and pearls of all colors.  Here, I used singles, but lately I have been buying up and using some Flourished ones, too.  They are just so easy to use and always put the finishing touches on a card.  And, unlike a brad which must be decided on before stuff is glued which is rare for me, I can just add these last minute.   Totally fab and a must have!  Never fear, though, my next favorite embellishment are my bows! 

This card is for a few other challenges as well.
I am using the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge(CTD116)!  I am using the sketch from Midnight Madness(MMSC77).  I chose the clean and simple version and actually left it clean and simple.  Imagine that!
