Down on the Farm with QKR Stampede

     New challenge starts today at QKR Stampede and our latest theme is "Down on the Farm."  I took the opportunity to make a card for a friend who always begs me to make Christmas cards for them to mail out.  Since they are horse people and live on a ranch, I thought this one would be perfect for them.  I've actually made a dozen of these and the little outhouses are all different colors.


     The image is Digi 16202 "Outhouse" and the sentiment is Digi 14104 "Our Ranch."  The "at Christmas" part is my own so don't waste time searching the store for it.  :-D

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and then cut it with a stitched square die from Cheery Lynn.  I also cut both sentiment pieces with a smaller die from that same set.  The ribbon was in my Christmas stash and the snowflakes were left over from last year's embellishments.  I'm pretty sure the sparkly dp in the background is DCWV but I've had it for so long, I have no idea what stack.

     Tons of delicious texture on this card from the layers and the embellishments.

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
