Winds of Grace Double Challenge


This is a birthday card for my brother, Brad, who I love with all my heart! His birthday was several months ago, however, he was working out of state and I didn't trust the USPS to get it to him in one piece. I had started this card, but had to put it aside because I "just wasn't feelin' it"! You know what I mean? I just wasn't inspired and didn't want to make a mediocre card.....the cards I make for my family are always very personal and well-planned. So.....when I saw the Limited Supply Challenge at Splitcoast, to use a beach scene, etc......and then I saw the Fun Friday Challenge at Christian Papercrafts Magazine to use "Relaxation" for your theme, the rest of the card just came together. This stamp set is Stampin' Up "Winds of Grace".....I bought it used a few months ago and I just love it!!! The background scene was sponged with Tempting Turqoise, Basic Gray, Marigold Morning, and Ruby Red, using a large post-it-note as a mask in order to sponge the horizon.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Many blessings to you!!!
