Timeless Country Greetings

Hey y'all!  Happy Thursday.  I lucked out yesterday:  I was super tired so I took a nap when my kiddo went down for his nap, but he stayed asleep long enough that after I woke up, I got this card made before he started making noise.  Yay naptime crafting!

I wouldn't want to mass produce this card just because of the fussy cutting, much less the coloring, but I do like how it turned out.

Challenge time!  Let's start with Freshly Made Sketches:

Hey, I stayed pretty close to the sketch this time!  Next up is the color challenge from Color Throwdown:

I used Berry Burst (just a teensy bit), Highland Heather, Mint Macaron (Old Olive was my first choice, but I don't have the Old Olive Blends yet so I went with Mint Macaron instead), and Crumb Cake.

Finally, check out the What Will You Stamp? challenge:

I used two stamps from Timeless Textures for the horizontal strips under the main image; I thought they really helped with the rustic look on this card.  I had a scrap of Mint Macaron patterned paper so I just snipped off a 1/2" strip for the left side of the card.  Easy peasy!

That's it for me today.  Cheers, y'all!
