Beyond all Blessings Blessed

Hello everyone!
I got to play a little this morning and managed to get a few challenges into one hurried card. The limited supply challenge on SCS today was to use only food related images AND colors. Well.... that proved the be the challenge! I had to think a bit... but looking at all the SU! colors, it seemed the most colors that were food related were in the Earth Tones family, so that led me to fall images, and I thought this Our Daily Bread designs set would be perfect. I also made this card for a little group of friends who do a weekly challenge, and today's was to case a card of Deb's. I cased this card: Country Church. I used her basic layout but did add a layer and a couple of metal doo dads which made it qualify for Flourishes Timeless Tues. Challenge (FTTC27) to use metal in some way. I also added a sentiment panel.

I stamped the image onto water color paper and watercolored with the following Markers and/or inks: Pumkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Apricot Appeal, Cranberry Crisp, Adirondak Latte, Pesto, Butterscotch and Ginger. Whew!!! I think I kept all the rules! LOL!

The tiny sentiment on this is from the Rubber Stamp Tapestry Co. I cut my panels with Nestabilities Lg. Deckled Rectangles, used a Chocolate ribbon and Chocolate CS from Papertrey. The texture is a Sizzix embossing folder. There are Stickles on the flowers and some white highlights made with a Signo Gel Pen, but those things never seem to show up in a photo.

This was a real rushed card but I'm so glad I got to play a bit! I hope you have a blessed day and a totally terrific weekend! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to have a look at my blog candy!
