Tranquil Hills

One of my birthday gifts was Summer Hills stamp set by Papertrey Ink.  Love, love, love.  This sweet little scene stole my heart.


To create the base beneath the scene, I adhered a pretty floral pattern from Stampin' Up! (retired, no idea what the name is) and a strip of scalloped punched white cardstock to the plum base.  Then, I sent it through the Big Shot with a Paper Studio embossing folder, Ornate Flourish.


The sentiment comes with the same stamp set, and there are boundless occasions this card could be used for.  God's grace is truly amazing!

The scene is lovely; I can see why you love it so much. What I love about this card is - of course- that stamp but also the layering paired up wit an embossed backgrond. Looks so elegant. That bow you added.....wow!
