You're Such A Blessing!

This was such a fun card to make. I had to color up this fun image from Krista Smith "Dreads Are Awesome"! She has a bit of a hippy look also. I don't like the peace symbals so I used paint net and erased it off the yo-yo. I just received three new dies from All That Scraps and had to have a play with them. I had watched a video that sweet Pam Sparks had done on the fence and of course I was sure I could rember just how she did it and make mine look as good as hers! LOL...what Pam make look easy was not nearly as easy for me. Can you imagine that? Mostly, I had and issue with the paper I chose and the pressure I used with my bone folder. But once I placed it on my card I loved it and thought it looked as if we are seeing the image in a garden. I love, love, the C.C. Designs Flower Boarder Die! Don't you just love the way the flowers peek out of the fence? I added some dew drops to the centers of the flowers. Just to add to the look I gave my new C.C Designs Grass Boarder Die a try. I love how the scale is small and works well with the fence and stamps. As  you can see I spent lots of time playing with this card. The time spent was well worth it because I love the outcome. I hope your week-end is shaping up to be a great one.
I will look for some challenges this might work in.
My Song: A Natural Woman
Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you were the key to my peace of mind
'Cause you make me feel,
You make me feel,
You make me feel like
A natural woman
