April's Orange Beauty

  My family has had the pleasure of hosting volleyball almost every week at our home since early spring this year. This has become our family ministry, getting together with fellow Homeschooling families and Christian young adults to play volleyball.  The Lord has blessed us with enough flat ground to put up 6 full courts....Good ol' plains of Illinois!  On average we have 40-60 players each night we play. All levels of skill are present and we hope to be instilling good sportsmanship and encouragement to all who attend.
We are blessed to have met so many new young people through this:)
April is one such young lady.The other night, she wore a FABULOUS orange tee-shirt..I asked if I could take a photo so I could make a card inspired by it.

Her is my card
Thanks April for the Inspiration!

I sponged Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick for the background after embossing several stamps in clear and white for a resist. Then stamped more flowers and dots with the same three inks.
Wplus9, PTI, Unity, and Hero Arts stamps were used.

SSS Wednesday Challenge is Make your own Background.  I will be linking up with that challenge:)

Thanks for stopping by.
