His Hands!

This card is for two challenges!!!! It snowed here yesterday and I did not get much stamping time in. However, I really loved the color combination from yesterday's SCS Color Challenge (CC202). Great colors, Emily!!!! I also wanted to play in today's SCS Sketch Challenge(SC212).Thanks, Roxie for a great sketch!!!
I used ODBD Lift Your Hands set. This set is so versatile. I love the praying hands image with the comtemporary background. I tried to keep the card pretty simple since the sketch has so many layers. I used some SU Bella Rose dp because it has the kiwi kiss print. I love the polka dots. I embraced the bold color combo which I love and went with it. I also used two cuttlebug ef textures. I finished my card with a lot of sponging and two huge white brads that I have had for a long time. I thought they looked great with the white dots in the background dp. I did add a touch of a bow knot at the top. As far as my layout goes, I did stagger the colors on the vertical panel at the bottom just to create some interest. What do you think?
The funny thing about it snowing here yesterday for the first time in years is that the kids were already out of school with mid-semester break. It is starting to melt. It was fun while it lasted!!!
