Can I Even Find My Colored Pencils?

That was the question this morning, as I looked at the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge: Sharpen Up. I finally did find them, dusted them off and began working on the lion and lamb image from the Peace on Earth set by Our Daily Bread Designs:

See a card I made with the dove from this set HERE.
I used this SCS sketch for my layout:
I have also recently re-discovered how much fun Magic Mesh is to use, so I added that as an embellishment and tied some Fancy Fibers over the top layer of the card. The background papers from Provo Craft brought out both colors in my main image. A little torn edge here and there, and some sponged clouds in the background - and it was done! Don't think it was a fast process! My long-time readers know I make cards very slowly. I think I enjoy the process more than the finished product sometimes!

Tomorrow I host the SCS Limited Supplies Challenge, so I hope you will come on over there to play, and then come back here to see what I made!
