AWARDS AND A SPRING CARD

Hello again! I know TWO posts in one day! Can you believe it!? If you are coming here via a Direct Link - I have Blog Candy HERE.

First off, upon my arrival to BLOG LAND I noticed I won TWO FABULOUS prestigious awards. That brought a BIG SMILE TO MY FACE!!!




On top of those exciting Awards - I won a free stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs!

The card I am sharing with you today incorporates TWO challenges. I have TWO pictures because I couldn't decide which view I liked better so I thought I would go with BOTH of them.

The first Challenge was the MOJO Sketch which is pictured above. The second challenge was the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC6 - This week the challenge team is challenging you to Think Spring and New Life- Since this is the first day of Spring, create something for spring using Spring colors, sentiments and images portraying New Life. (perfect time for an Easter Creation being that we are new creatures in Christ).

I embossed the Path of Life image from Our Daily Bread Designs on designer paper from the Western Sky Stampin' Up! - I love the Soft Sky paper and added a touch more color using Prismacolor Pencils to some of the embossed images.

Here is some more information:
Stamp Sets: Path of Life from Our Daily Bread Designs
Cardstock: Kraft, Cocoa, Soft Sky, Western Sky DP from SU
Accessories: Pearl Accents, Prima Flowers, Sponge, Nestibilities, Prismacolor Pencils, Gold EP, Heat Tool, Dimensionals, Stitched Ribbon

Have a blessed day! Thank you for stopping by!

I looked through your beautiful things. It is so hard to decide, but I pick this as my favorite. It is so elegant looking and I like the idea of showing a different technique on a detail stamp instead of coloring it. TFS

Amusing card, just like old etching! Very intresting technique - to combine embossing and colouring.
