International Art & Soul Challenge #21

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Today's challenge over at International Art & Soul is Challenge #21 Autumn Colors.

As most of you know, I love this time of year, time to "gather in". and count our blessings.  Do you ever think about how blessed we are?  I think about it a lot.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed by how much I have and how little others have.  I wonder how it was decided that I would be born here where there is so many opportunities.  When I broke my ankles I thought a lot about how lucky I was to have top notch hospital care and top notch aftercare.  Even though I have Meniere's disease, I get to have it in a nice cozy bed surrounded by comfort.  So I made this card for the challenge, it is called Bountiful Blessings.

Here is the inside.

Here is the recipe for this card:

Digital Stamp - DZ Doodles Digital Stamps
Sentiments - from favorite stamp set 
Copic Markers
Die Cut - Spellbinders make a card
Paper - Authentique 
Brad - BoBunny
