Every Blessing- Two Challenges in One :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I had a great time creating this past week and this card was created for the Just Add Ink JAI228 Color Challenge along with the Our DailyBread Designs ODBDSLC212 Sketch Challenge.
I know some of you have arrived from these challenge sites, but if not, I encourage you to visit the linked pages above and check out the wonderful Design Team projects as well as their fabulous galleries- you will definitely be inspired!

To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock (I inked the interior of the embossing folder before embossing the paper with Ranger© Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain). 
Trim the embossed panel and mount to the Blackberry Bliss card base.
Stamp the Chalkboard Hymn stamp with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto Whisper White cardstock and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Apply Ranger© Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain over the image to antique the paper a bit. 
Add a piece of Calypso Coral print of retired Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  Add a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock across the center of the panel and mount onto the card front.
Mount ½ of a White Tea Lace Paper Doily below the horizontal strip onto the card front.
Create the banners from the same print of retired Everyday Enchantment DSP- use the Hexagon Punch for the banner points and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock (creating banners with the punch as well).  
Add the banners to the back of the focal image and mount the focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the rolled flowers from Blackberry Bliss and Calypso Coral cardstock using the 2 ⅜” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punches.   Spiral cut by hand a wavy line from the outside of the scallop toward the center and roll up to create the rose (here is a basic tutorial from Splitcoaststampers). 
Use the Bird Builder Punch with Mossy Meadow cardstock to create the leaves.
Add the roses and the leaves to the card front to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Chalkboard Hymns (ODBD)
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Ranger© Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, retired Everyday Enchantment DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches: Hexagon, Bird Builder, Scallop Circle- 2 ⅜”, 1 ¾”, White Tea Lace Paper Doily

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a great Sunday!!
