Moxie Fab: Diggin' on Damask Challenge

I made this card for the Moxie Fab: Diggin' on Damask challenge.  For my card I used the Touch of Elegance clear art stamp set from Layers of Color and the Victoria Cuttelbug folder.  The sentiment is from Fanciful Tags.  The inspiration for this challenge on their blog post is amazing...I created my card based on the Classic Canvas Tote Bag in Pink and Brown Damask from MondayMorningStudios... Pink and Brown together just makes me happy!

Personal note:
My family and I are back from a week of vacation up in Virginia and I must say it was the best evah!!!  Lots of swimming, hiking, and even did a crazy zip line course (yep, tethered to a cable hooked around the waist) that has me shuddering that I actually DID it! I impressed the kids so that counts for being a "cool mom" I suppose, lol...it was a lot of fun though!! The foliage in the mountains of Virginia was beautiful... We topped the week off with a trip to an Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville, VA, on the way home and picked apples along the mountain side. An absolutely gorgeous view of His creation that leaves you speechless..... Amazing week.  Here is a pic of my craziness...



We went from perch to perch for about 1 1/2-2 hours and never touched the ground until the end.  Quite exciting and scary at the same time.  Definitely looking to do it again!!  
Hope to get back to blog hopping this afternoon and thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,

Gorgeous card! Beautiful colors... You are braver than I because I don't think I would ever be able to voluntarily get suspended that high above the ground!
