my madison rocker card

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

I love Sundays when they are laid back and quiet. This was one of those days. After church, we went to lunch with some friends. Great conversation and good food was the order of the afternoon.

I packed up a few bags of clothing for the Salvation Army pickup tomorrow morning. Checked in on a few other friends on the phone this afternoon and before I knew it, it's late Sunday night.

My card for today is one that I made for the inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week our hostess Stef took us to the rooms by Zoya B site. I loved the home furnishings on this site.  I found this Madison-Empire rocker that I would love for my home and I used it as my card inspiration.

The stripes on the chair reminded me of some Stampin-Up designer paper the "Parisian breeze" collection. I used that with some chocolate chip. I liked the look of the cording on the white part of the ottoman and chair so I added that to my card as well.
My scripture sentiment is from ODBD stamps "light of the world" collection. The 3 corduroy buttons completed my card.

This card is for a few other challenges:

1.  Aly's Sunday sketch has a masculine challenge.

2.  The corrosive challenge blog has a "button it up" challenge.

3.  The sketchy colors blog is using blue, brown and white.

4.  The winter wonderland blog has a "my sentiments exactly" challenge.

Well, it looks like a rap for another day. Good night & God bless!!
