You're Farm-Tastic

Hi, everyone! Happy weekend!

Today's card was inspired by the current MFT Sketch and will be headed to a little one at Nationwide Children's.

As soon as I saw those three horizontal rectangles, I immediately thought of a farm's picket fences. Since I used three fences with grass for all three rectangles, I chose to vary the lengths and place different farm critters at each fence. To add a little interest to the background, I lightly stenciled clouds atop all three fence locations.

images stamped in MFT hybrid chocolate and colored with Prismacolor pencils
sentiment heat embossed using Versamark ink and SU white embossing powder
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way glue pen; SU foam strips

Since this is sketch inspired, I'm also sharing it at the Cards in Envy Feeling Sketchy Card Challenge. And, I'm going to link it up over at the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
