Allsorts Challenge #11-Chocolate and Marshmallow and Dawny P Sketch and Cinema Saturday Challenge #47-Amazing Grace

I created this card for 2 challenges. For the Allsorts Challenge you had to follow the Dawny P Sketch and also use the colors marshmallow and chocolate. The movie for the Cinema Saturday Challenge this week is Amazing Grace. I haven't watched this yet but I did watch the trailer. I will try to watch it this week. I wanted to keep this card simple and inspirational. All stamps used are StampinUp. I stamped the cross in Sahara Sand and then stamped off so it would be lightly stamped. I then stamped the saying over that in Chocolate Chip. I embossed the bird with white on dark brown paper and cut it out. The patterned paper is Karen Foster and I ran the brown panel through the Argyle Cuttlebug folder. Thanks for stopping by!
