Country Life



How's this for a bright, sunny card?  I've created this Country Life scene using the new Barn Whispers die from Die-Versions.  I've cut it out several times so I could paper piece various parts and I've also used quite a few of the negative pieces.  The Sweet Petite Goose is walking in the foreground. (He must be on the way to the pond for a swim.)

I've also incorporated the Express Edge HELLO along the top edge, inked with the same Distress Inks.  The word sunshine is from the Die-Versions Cuppycake font.

The background was created using Distress Inks and my Scor-Pal scoring board for the rays of sunshine.  I got the idea for this here and knew that I wanted to recreate something similar.  This card makes me smile every time I look at it as I love those bright colors.

Don't forget to check out the Die-Versions Blog as well as the Die-Versions Facebook page to see all the latest projects using this month's New Release called "Country Life".

This is wonderful - so bright, positive, and cheerful. I really like it! I want a barn so much but I am going to have to wait for a lottery win (guess I should be buying some tickets or something - LOL). Fun, fun, fun. Hugz!
