It's a Papertrey Day!

Hello!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Ours was a bit boring, but I'm determined to make it a good week!  I did get this card made yesterday, once again, from scraps I found laying around on my desk. Also found a colored image similar to this one, but the nestie had slipped and ruined it.  No problem, I stamped and recolored!
This is one of my all time favorite sets from Papertrey (along with Vintage Picnic).  I think I could color these images every day!  I love, love the 'wood' paper from My Mind's Eye's last collection.  I ordered soooo much! That's why these scraps were never thrown away!  Too good!  Now, the base layer as I'm sure you've figured out is Summer Starfruit from Stampin Up! I think it is one of those quirky colors that you hate and then love!  I'm determined to love and find colors it works with.  I started with 'Baja' because it's similar to what I THINK they used in the big SU catalog.  I cut a panel and then embossed it with Tim Holtz's wood grain folder. I sponged some soft suede to help define the grain a bit and layered it onto a card base of Summer Starfruit.
A little twine to complete the 'country' look and a card was born!
Thanks for coming by today! Enjoy your day!

Hi Cheryl, your card is so beautiful! I love the woodgrain DP's on the embossed woodgrain background. I love the teal that you used along with them. And, the flowers are colored so beautifully! Have a wonderful week!
