Farm Country

I received this awesome birthday card from Rhonda and just loved the Green Madeira used as the grass with the Green Kitchen on the Cabana blue-ish cardstock. Well, on Monday I had to drive to Orondo, which is out near Wenatchee, WA otherwise known as 'apple country.' It was a gorgeous drive up through Stevens Pass, Leavenworth (a cute little Bavarian style village) and then through so many apple orchards. Rhonda's card totally inspired me with this creation.
Now I totally could have used the farm house from Saltbox Studio, but it is facing the opposite direction and quite frankly, I didn't pull the sentiment from the Saltbox mini banner set until after I had created the rest of the card. I stamped the A Muse farmhouse onto the Cabana Blue notecard, then again on a separate piece of white cardstock, colored it, cut it out, then mounted over the first stamped image. The pinking along the grass is from the A Muse Fancy Borders clear set using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. You can probably figure out the rest.
I would love to see any cards you have created that were inspired by a fellow A Muse fan. Feel free to share a link by posting a comment in the comment section.
