Farm Yard Greetings

Welcome

I needed a card for a friend who moved from being a 'city girl' onto a farm, so decided that would be the theme in this card!


I started by die cutting the opposing corners with a die from the Memory Box Distress Baptista Collage Set, and  adhered gold paper behind them.


The sentiment is from Layers of Color (now defunct) stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy ink.


The image is also from Layers of Color, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and  coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

  20. I love roosters : ) This card is wonderful- love the gold shimmer and the die you used is a perfect match for an elegant country feel! My Mom and Hubby both grew up on farms, so at one time growing up, we had rooster dishes.... Wishing you many blessings in 2016!
