Catching a breeze...

I went for something completely different on today's card...I stamped a scene.  Is it my favorite...not really...but it is always fun to experiment.  The layout came from a great sketch by Margaret Moody over at the Pals Paper Arts.  Be sure and check out their challenge this week.

Stamps:  A Kind Word, Sensational Scenery, Hedgehog Happiness
Paper:   White, Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz
DSP:  Blushing Bride, Concord Crush
Ink:  Black, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Summer Sun, Peach Parfait
Accessories:  Prisma markers, SU markers, SU pastels, rhinestones, corner rounder, dimensionals, distressing tool

For the sun and grass, I did the "rock 'n roll" technique.  I used all retired stamps on this card.  Sometimes you just have to dust off the old and use them too. 

Now it is off to stamp...Thursday if craft day!  Have a great day!

You have so many excellent cards on your blog. I've been away from blogging for the summer, but wanted to come back to see what you've been up to.
I love the pictures of your dogs too!
