Hay There!

I'm participating in the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar challenge, find the details here.

I'm coming in with another fun card using lots of My Favorite Things!  For the background I cut a stitched square from the Die-namics Blueprints 8 set in the color Field Day and stamped it with Gingham BG, I stamped the matt with the Burlap BG on Berrylicious  and cut out the matt with the Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Square STAX, and attached them with foam tape to my card base.  The scene was created on water color paper with a water colored sky and paper pieced pastures using the Rolling Hills, Stitched Snow Drifts and Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics with scraps of designer paper. I paper pieced my sweet cowgirl's hat and shirt so that I could add texture.  For the hat, I colored it with Copics and then stamped it with the Burlap BG in Kraft ink, the shirt I stamped in Berrylicious with the Cheesecloth BG for a subtle pattern. The cowgirl is from the BB Green Pastures set and the rest of the images are from the BB The Whole Herd. The greeting is placed on a tag from the Blueprints 13 Die-namics set.  All of the cut out pieces were raised with foam tape.

Paper: MFT (Field Day, Banana Split, Berrylicious) Water color Paper, designer paper scraps.

Accessories: foam tape, Copic markers.
