PTI Entry (that didn't get done in time! grrr!)

I had a horrible time trying to come up with something decent for yesterday's PTI Emboss Resist challenge.  I started this card last night and had to put it away and go watch a movie because the creative juices were NOT flowing.  I just kept adding things to it to make it look a bit more interesting and finally added the picket fence this morning.  I cut it with my cricut and since it didn't cut all that smooth, we'll just say that the fence is in need of repair, so it's...rustic. LOL



I stamped the curved stone path with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder then I used some colorbox fluid chalk and rubbed it all over the bottom portion for grass.  I used my scor-pal to score some lines on the kraft panel and rubbed some PTI fresh snow ink on it give it a weathered look.  The polka dot door adds a bit of whimsy.  Stamp set is Home Made from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by and I plan on doing some blog hopping this weekend so I can see what my crafting buddies have been making.  First, I have to go shopping (poor me!) and get ready for the Girl Scout Father-Daughter dance tonight.  My oldest daughter's troop was in charge of decorating this year and I am helping with the picture booth.

Have a wonderful day!
