On the farm

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: the great outdoors, showcasing Paper artsy products.
I don;t have any, Love their whimsical flower stamps, but I love so many things crafty...can't buy everything....if only lol...
I'm also entering in into the AAA cards challenge: Bright and Beautiful.
For my card I depicted a farm scene, that's outside, rural, I envisage  a big ranch somewhere, Kansas by the look of the barn...

I used the Sugar Pea design farm scape to cut out the farm scene, mounted it with foam tape. Behind it on the cardbase I inkblended Distress ink broken china.

For the pigs I stamped the My favorite things from Sew much cuteness as well as the butterfly, In Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink onto the Crafter's companion neenah paper.
Colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and also mounted them with foam tape.

I wasn't sure which sentiment to use, so I left one out until the right occasion presents itself.

I considered ink blending the white fields with mowed lawn Distress ink, but I thought the piggies would blend into the background and as you know, I like my cards CAS.
