Happily Crafting Again....Entering Card Challenges Too!

I haven't done a card challenge for at least a couple of years now. I am so glad to be making cards again and now even entering challenges again, I have so missed the creative side of me! Crafteresa is back!
I created a card today for someone who is just pondering her future, where God wants her to be, what he wants her to do with her life? She will be returning to university after the summer break. I will miss her at church so I made this just to bless and encourage her.....
She is a lovely young lady with long hair just like in the image and she even has some lovely stripey tights too (but not the same as these!) my prayer is that she will know God's direction when she needs it. That reminds me of the saying .....never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God!

I used my newest rubber stamp, it's a Whimsy Wee stamp "Sweet Blossoms" 
I think she will be used a lot as she looks so different when using different colours.  I used the Cuttlebug "Stylised Flowers" embossing folder on the yellow card layer, the card blank was already embossed with circles and I used nesties to cut the scalloped circle for the image and the red labels background. Red ribbon and assorted flowers with amber gem centres finish the card off.

I am entering this card into the Wimsy Stamps Challenge, they ask for LOTS OF LAYERS! so I hope three on top of the card blank is enough!?
I 'm also entering this card into another challenge... Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenges EMBOSS IT is there challenge, Well there's plenty of embossing on this card!
Please excuse the quality of the 2nd image, it was taken a lot later in the day with different light!
