Layers of Color {Masterpiece Monday}

First, before I share today's releases and creation, I wanted to wish my precious mother a very happy and blessed BIRTHDAY!!!! She is such a blessing in my life, and with our recent trials both Mom and Dad have been right there helping anytime we need it. I couldn't get through this without them. I pray your day is blessed beyond measure, Mom, because you are a blessing to SO many. We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now for our last week of new releases from Layers of Color, I am showcasing the new set Rise & Shine (10 stamps in set). I created a little "country fun" card using Basic Grey papers and the Rise and Shine set. I just LOVE this set. Hmm, I think I have said that about every Layers of Color set. LOL! Laura is so talented! Anyway, you can do so much with this set, and imagine it on recipe cards too. Oh so cute!

For my card today, I used 4 of the 10 stamps in the set. After stamping them and using my watercolors to color each image, I sponged the "dirt" at the bottom of the chicks and the hen. I added a little stitching too for fun, and the gingham ribbon finishes off the country look!
