September Sketch Challenge Graphic copy

For my card, I chose the sketch in the upper right corner and added a slight angle to the focal piece.  My manila tag was inked with Aged Mahogany, Tea Dye and Barn Door Ranger Distress inks before I stamped my scene from the Country Road stamp set using some Versamark and Memento Rich Cocoa ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  On the smaller tag, I stamped the “Welcome” from the Tag Lines stamp set and embellished with some Kraft Jute, Graphic 45 brads and a little Barbed Wire detail from a Silhouette Online Store cut file.

On the inside of the card, I added another scene and sentiment from the Country Road stamp set.
