Country Girl...

Good evening lovely peeps  and I hope that the sun is shining where you are. It's been glorious in Dorset today and I hope it stays that way tomorrow as a friend and I are off to an agricultural show to see what the horsey world are up to!! Which leads nicely to my card which is farm/country themed...

I was inspired by a couple of challenges that I found as I was trawling through blogland and dug out Chloe by Elisabeth Bell who I coloured with Promarkers. The colour combo of red, green and cream  was dictated by the papers which were a freebie ( funnily enough I already had them in digi form).To continue the rustic feel I distressed the edges of the papers and the frame with ink.  I rarely use flowers these days due to the postage costs, but felt this card cried out for some, so duly added a mix of paper ones and a little resin rose. I added some faux stitching with a white pen for a little interest too. Hope you like her!

I am playing along at these challenges
