a little scene

I don't know about you, but I was a bit overwhelmed on World Card Making Day. 
Visiting blogs, Facebook, and stamp sites to see what everyone was sharing. 
Trying to take advantage of some one day discounts, participating in challenges. 

I did stumble onto Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom with several artists sharing techniques and hosting challenges with a one week deadline. Works for me!

Here is my little square card for the Scene It Challenge by Kittie Caracciolo.


I used the Modern Landscape die from Memory Box and gave it some color
with thinned out distress inks. The background card was also painted with distress inks and I mounted the landscape with some dimensional foam.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Here's a closer look at the colored house and trees.


I'll also be entering this in Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use dies or punches.

Thanks for visiting today!

  18. Hi, sis, I just saw your comment on my card. How funny. I guess we are really meant to be "soul sis". Love your sweet scene card. BTY, do you love your silhouette cameo? I'm really tempting to get one this Christmas but afraid of wasting my money. (I have a Slice machine but rarely use it.) I appreciate any input you give me. Thanks.
