I am entering this card into two challenges -- Simon Says Embossing and Impression Obsession Any Type Greeting Card. I was itching to use my new lattice die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut out the lattice using thin cardboard and then painting Tim Holtz crackle paint on it and rubbing Tea Dye Distress ink over it. This Flower Wheelbarrow stamp ( D1312 ) from Impression Obsession went perfectly with this card. I ran black core card stock through a cuttlebug folder and sanded the card stock for the green to show through. I also used embossing powder to emboss the wheelbarrow.
