Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Country Life!

Howdy, howdy! Thank you so much for joining me for my Terrific Tuesday Challenge project today! This weeks cart is County Life....


I used Lacy Labels for the base and the stamp is from SMS Spring Fling set.

Boy, this card was lots of work. I had it all planned out on my Gypsy but did NOT do a good job of space planning! LOL I didn't have enough space for my stamp, so I tried to make it a 2 line stamp and didn't like it. Then I tried (since I had already "ruined" the card) to see if I could stamp it across the sun - yuck! So I wound of pulling off all the layers and cutting them again (well, not the clothesline - that, I managed to salvage). I actually moved all the hill layers up about .5" so that less of the sun shows but I was able to gain more "grass" space at the bottom for my stamp. Oh, what I did to make the bottom grass layer longer is to weld a square onto the bottom. I then had to cut out the shape to match the label once it was glued down. Whew! :)

I hope you enjoyed my little card! Be sure to join us this Friday for 2 new Scrappy Moms Stamps releases and on Saturday for a blog hop! :)

Cute card! I hate when I try and plan a card out and it never goes together like I picture in my mind. Your card turned out great despite the trouble it gave you.
