Nobody Does It Better Hunting Card---Time for Another Challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions...

Hello there, Crafty people!  Wow, October is almost gone and I'm getting busier each day.  I need to prepare for a Christmas Shop showcase at our Church and I realized I need to make more stuff to sell before that day comes.  We have gone through some trials the past few months but as always, the Lord Jesus has been our strength and victory.  I'm grateful for every trial because it makes me appreciate the victory at the end even more. Apart from Him, we can do nothing.  (John 15:5)

Anyway, I had to break away from the busy routine of life to make this project for our JDE Color Challenge this week and the colors are...Orange, Brown and Teal.  We're giving away some wonderful prizes to those who would join so, hop on over the JDE Blog to check the rules and link up your projects...I didn't realize how challenging it is for me to follow a color scheme till I made this card.  I guess I am use to not worrying much about the color combo than the over-all appearance of the project.  But with God by my side, everything went well...I used a Bugaboo image which I had for a while now but haven't used called "Gus Hunting."  I had fun coloring it using my ProMarkers and Prismacolor markers and added some Glossy Accents to his eye glasses.  I inked the panel that has the image with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The DP's are all from My Mind's Eye "Boy Stack." For embellishment, I adhered 2 colors of brads---orange and teal (3 each), added some twine and a couple of die-cuts---border from EK Success and corner from Cuttlebug.  I also rounded the panel using my Corner Chomper from Memory Keepers.  The wonderful sentiment is a freebie from TLC Digi Stamp Collection.   Finally, I stitched all over the card and envelope panel to give it an edge...I am happy with the results. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Catch the Bug featuring "October Bingo" (Diagonal--P (polka dot), Sentiment, 3 DP's)
2.    Fussy and Fancy featuring "Anything Goes" 
3.    Anything Goes featuring "Make Your Own Embellishment" (Made 2 bows out of twine)
