You Have Been Missed! SCS CC251!

This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC251)! This week is all about Barely Dusty Grays! We are to use Barely Banana, Dusty Durango, and Basic Gray colors! This week's dessert option is Charming! Add a Charm of choice to your card/project!

I am using one of ODBD sets called Flourished Christian Symbols! I must say this is one of my favorite sets from ODBD. Now, I own a lot and have lots of favorites, but there is something about a solid image stamp that just works ALL of the time! I love to color images and find that process fun, but to play around with different looks with a solid image just by the colors I choose is just amazing to me. I rocked and rolled this beautiful dove. I used really rust ink(do not own the dd ink pad) and slightly touched some smokey shadow to the edges a bit. I love how it turned out. I added a tiny gold pearl eye detailing. I finished with some gold pearls, ribbon bow, flower punches with gold metallic dew drops centers, and heart charm! I really love this color combo today, too! I admit that the dd is growing on me a bit!
