Let heaven and Nature Sing

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!

If you are looking for the Our Daily Bread designs Blog hop, please scroll down 2 posts. If you are here for the Stampin Sisters in Christ post, please scroll down 1 post.

Today I wanted to play in a challenge over at JustRite and to do that you have to use a JustRite image. Now I have JustRite Monograms of different sizes and a tiny circle image, but my only larger images are from this Christmas Treasures set. So.... Christmas it is, and now I'm one ahead for next year! LOL!

The challenge is a sketch by the ever so talented Tosh, and I had fun playing with it.

Card Details:
Stamps: JustRite Christmas Treasures
Papers: BasicGrey Wassill, SU! True Thyme, Scraps of tan from stash
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder, MS Punches, Ribbon from stash, Spellbinder's Classic Circle die cuts, Copics for coloring, Distress inks for sponging, Bling from M's

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Quizotic - Distress (used distress inks)
Stampavie - Distress
Stamp & Royalty- Punches
Pile it On - Boyish colors (red/brown... this is a male cardinal LOL)
All Sorts - Animals (bird)
Papertake Weekly - Something different (this is the first time I've used this stamp)

Grace your card is gorgeous. I love cardinals. My son and I were sitting outside this morning listening to the cardinals singing. We were trying to imagine what they were saying to eachother. I think they were saying "Thank you God for such a beautiful day!"
