At the gate

I find cards for men and boys more difficult, however I took advantage of LOTV’s recent offer to get 3 male images for the price of 2, and this is a card I made using one of these.   The image is – In the Country – and it’s perfect for where we live, as it is very rural.   The farmers don’t often stand at the gate – they are much too busy – but I could imagine them doing just that.   I followed a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for this card – using papers from Nitwits Antebellum, and garden twine for a rustic feel. The clouds are from an embossing folder I got free with a magazine I bought on our recent trip to the UK.
