Stepping out boldly

This marks my very first blog post ever in my life!  I have been a "scrap booker" for years, but a year ago broke into card making.  I am by no means confident in my skills, but have a blast trying to create.  This card that I have created means a lot to me, as it is to honor a very special person's passing. Her faith and her love for color exuded from her as this was my inspiration.  I used bold colors and hope that you enjoy them.  Heartfelt creations stamps and dies were used for this card from both the butterfly dreams and sweet peonies collections.  Images were colored with sharpie markers and stamped with memento tuxedo black. Pink, white, green, and preprinted cardstocks were use.

I am submitting this project in my first ever online challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge.  Challenge #82.
The card is also being submitted to challenge# 146 Pattie’s Creations Design Challenge
