Little country

I decided to go through my basket of embellishments I have to see if there was anything I could use for thank you's and I came upon these two little packages of embellishments my sister gave me awhile ago, to me they look like they have a country feel to them.

The first I went with a sketch added some jute to them, placed them on some die cuts since I have a pretty busy background.

Paperbilites- Add ons (star, circle, heart)
Spellbinders - classic scalloped square small dies
David Tutera - sentiment

Next I used one of the bigger ones with a little one added.

Paperbilities - Add ons (heart and circle button)
DCWV - paper
Clearly whimsy stamps - simple sentiments stamp

We are having some high winds today, we may get blown away on our walk today,
Hope you all are well, and thanks for taking the time to stop by :)

Both cards are absolutely darling with a rustic country look. The first reminds me of the Americana style, and the second is all country. Gingham just has a way of looking country. Cute! Watch out for falling branches as you're walking in the wind!

Great 'Country' feel to these cards Connie!
I like the way you used the white BG to make the embel's pop~
Brown & blue are 2 of my fav combinations! Beautiful work <3 hugs to you, karen o

It always amazes me, Connie, how with very few pretties you imagine beautiful cards. What a beautiful "thank you" to receive.

They do have a beautiful country flavor and vibe. They could also be Valentine's cards too. Very Pretty!
