A card for 4 Challenges



I made a card to fit 4 different challenges! I really enjoyed putting it all together. Stamp Simply's challenge #126 was to use purple and green. (My favorite color is purple!) The Sketch is from I {heart} to stamp (a great sketch that I'm sure to use again), Stamping Sisters in Christ's #26 challenge is to let someone know how much God loves them, based on I John 4: 10 "This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins." They are giving a really cute Simon Says stamp set to the winner. And at Fred She Said, the challenge is to use one of Tracey's digis (she has lots of awesome freebies) on your creation. She is giving a $20 voucher to her store to the winner!

I used one of FSS's freebie digital flowers. I copied it 4 times on regular paper. I colored each blossom with watercolor pencils and blended with lavendar oil. (first time I ever tried this technique. Usually people use mineral oil, but I didn't have any. The lavendar worked nicely.) I used Copic marker to color the background of the medallion and along the edges of each petal. The ivory card base is Bazzil Shimmer paper, the dark purple green papers are from DCSW shimmer stack. I cuttlebugged the green panel. I wrote the sentiment on Tinsley by EK Success.

I love this color combo! I hope that this card will bless someone needing to know how much God cares about them.

Thank you for visiting me!
