Hardwood Picket Fence Card !

Hello ! Just a quick post very late in the day to show you one of the cards I have made today ! I have seen lots of cards featuring the gorgeous background stamp Hardwood - it's a wonderful versatile stamp and well worth the investment as it has a multitude of uses ! This is my take on the picket fence style cards that have been made with it ! I started by stamping onto soft sky in baked brown sugar ink and then toned it down by sponging over in white ink. Then I trimmed out all the panels and cut them in half across the width giving me lots of fence slats which I then pointed using the banner punch ! 




I then sponged the edges in crumb cake to define and then set about doing my background . The card is A5 size and I stamped onto whisper white for a fresh clean look - I used a mix of stamp sets to achieve the floral collage and my inks were a mix of soft shades. I also sponged the top of the page in pool party to give a feel of the sky ! Then I glued on my fence and added some little punched flowers and leaves to soften the fence. The sentiment is inside - not every card has to have a sentiment on the outside !!!
I had fun making this card - it is for my daughter just to let her know how special she is !!! 
Many thanks for stopping by !
