FTTC158–Country Cool

Happy Tuesday everyone~

Well, it is actually before 11PM on Monday and I usually finish writing the post for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge by now and I was planning to mention about Daytona 500 … However, the race is not finished yet due to the fire on the track!! Poor drivers and NASCAR people. They must be so exhausted!

Anyway, the show must go on and so does this week’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC158) ! Tammy is challenging us to create something inspired by *country living*. For example, a farm-theme, gardening, country patterns (gingham, plaid, calico), quilts, wildflowers... the possibilities are endless! Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

For my card, I used Garden Fresh set for the image and sentiment. The carrots were colored with Copic markers. I designed the card with Eco Park Country Drive designer paper and the kraft paper was stamped with Country Charm Borders. I used Country Charm Labels and coordinated Spellbinders label die for the sentiment and attached the buttons. To finish off, I embellished the lace trim and vintage twine.

 

 

 

The Copic Collections I mostly used.
