I had a super busy weekend and it felt so good this morning to settle down in my little office, with the washer and dryer going, knowing that I had time to play along with some challenges. I actually combined 3 challenges together to make this card. I used the Mojo Monday sketch, the SplitCoastStampers Technique Lovers challenge and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge. Below is the Mojo Monday sketch.
Todays Technique Lovers challenge is faux suede. If you follow the link above to the challenge Lynn provides a good explanation of this technique. Not sure how well this picture show it but the chocolate chip layer behind the main image is sueded. I love the soft look this gives and the added texture. The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is to show the "earth rejoicing" for that I chose the soft earth tones in this card and the wonder ferns in the designer paper a I have chosen. The stamp set is With Heartfelt Sympathy, one of the new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs.
What I used:
With Heartfelt Sympathy ODBD
chocolate chip, whisper white card stock
My Minds Eye, Bella, Bella designer paper
chocolate chip, mellow moss classic stamp pads
white satin ribbon
scalloped circle nestie
