Fall on the farm

Love these farm scenes, I was planning on putting some flower soft on the tree in the left hand corner and after I had it mailed I realized I never did that :( 

Northwoods Rubber Stamps -- colored w/markers
g.c.d. -- Loverly papers
Burlap strip I added walnut stain distress ink to make it a little darker
Distressing around the edges of the card then added more walnut stain
Hero Art -- Its your day sentiment stamp set
Ki -- metal accents

I also took a close up shoot of just the scene.

I mounted the image onto a piece of kraft cardstock that was also inked with the walnut stain distress inks.
Think it would have looked better with the flower soft like I was planning, that is what I get for being so close to the time I have to send out my cards, hoping this made it to my nephew by his birthday.

Can you believe I managed to do this whole card without using one die, that doesn't happen to often.  I think my die cutting machines get a lot of work out :)

My sister in law from Michigan is coming today so I had better get back to the last minute things I want to get done.  I will have to see about posting more pics of the trip when I have more time.

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful Fall weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

What a gorgeous farm scene! Your coloring is really lovely. And I know what you mean Connie when you say it doesn't happen often that we are not reaching for our die cutting machines. TFS!
