Easter Blessings

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a pleasant weekend. My tooth is still not very good, but have coped with less tablets today. I'm not far off bed so will take another lot so will get a good sleep, hopefully. We actually get an extra hour tonight as daylight saving finishes and I will have to change my clock so the alarm goes off at the right time. LOL, if I don't do it I will be an hour early for church in the morning!
I went to craft at my friend, Judy's house today and picked up another friend on the way as her daughter had to go to work and needed her car. Just took along some paper embroidery to do as we decided to just do our own thing this week.
I made chicken vindaloo for tea - I didn't realise it was so hot!! We both were struggling with it. Adrian ate all his but I couldn't manage mine, way too spicy.
Anyway, here is my card for today.
I've used a pale bluey/green cardstock for my basecard and then a layer of light orange, a layer of slightly darker bluey/green DP with little leaves over it. Another layer of the light orange and then the image stamped onto white card. I used nestie dies to cut it out and also a yellow scalloped circle to back it. I coloured the image with Copics and also a white jelly roll pen (for the sheep) I used basic brown to ink the image and the sentiment on the inside. Both stamps come from a retired SU set called Faith & Hope. The inside has a piece of the light orange. I punched a strip of the DP with a picket fence punch and layered a strip of orange and a small strip of the yellow on top. Another nestie diecut, backed with some of the yellow card to finish off.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Stop Craft Challenge - Challenge #176 - Easter
Challenge Up Your Life - Challenge #66: Farbkombination / colour challenge. I wasn't quite sure whether the first two colours were a blue or green so have gone with a blue that has a green tinge to it when you put it up next to other blues, hope this is okay. The scan shows is a darker colour that what it actually is.

Just Add Ink - JAI #111 Just Add Easter
Raise The Bar - Challenge #98 - the promise of EASTER (religious aspect)
