Festive Friday Rustic Country - week 2...

Friday, February 22, 2013

Hello, everyone!  It's been awhile, it seems. Everyone here is healthy again and an extra-busy schedule has settled down again for a few days.  I'm sharing a card I've made to add to the inspiration over at Festive Friday where we are in week 2 of our 'Rustic/Country' themed challenge...

I thought more greenery was in order so I pulled out my Hero Arts wreath...

...added some wood veneer stars from Studio Calico that have just dabs of gold embossing here and there.  And I do love that pretty sentiment from PTI!
The papers are from a couple different Simple Stories collections and Authentique. (someone smack me if I spelled that wrong...I'm too tired to make a trip down and up the basement stairs to check!!!;)

With this challenge, Meredith has announced that a random winner will be drawn in November to receive a $40.00 gift certificate to one of three stamp/paper crafting shops.  If you've completed 15 of our challenges, you will qualify for the drawing.  Hope you'll consider playing along!!

You'll find the original inspiration from the rest of the DT here at the blog, in case you missed out last week.
Thanks for dropping in!
