Layers of Color - Fruitful Harvest

Good morning, fellow bloggers! I feel like I've been gone from my blog for ages! Well, I had quite a lot going on this past week but all is now done and taken care of, so here I am once again bringing you a bit of craftiness via the web! ;) This whole week, Layers of Color has been sponsoring the 2sketches4you weekly challenge.  They are giving away the LOC "Fruitful Harvest" clear art stamp set and a stencil to one lucky winner!  You must play along as this set is one of my faves and I think you'll love it too!  :)

Here is the card I made using the 2S4Y sketch:

That beautiful fruit image is one of the many beautiful fruit images in this set!  I used Vintage Medallion art stencil to create my background, sponging it with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo.  The "joy" sentiment is my own handwriting--never thought I'd be brave enough to do that!!!  LOL!

Our theme over at LOC this week has been the "Fruit of the Spirit" based off of Galatians 5:22 which says,  "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 2gentleness and self-control." We were challenged to use this verse as our inspiration for all our creations this week so I decided to focus on "joy" for my card today as crafting brings joy to my soul and hopefully, as I share my cards with others the receive joy as well!

Here is a close up of the fruit image colored using Copic Markers (on a side note, I am now Copic Certified!  I attended the certification class this past Saturday and just had a wonderful time!  The lovely Jen Balcer taught our class and we all had a great time!  I am now officially certified to to color! LOL!)
