Hi Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day. For my card I chose to use the new Farm Sweet Farm stamp set 652. I had so much fun making this easel card. I used a recent background stamp, Wonky Lines 659 and used Glisten embossing powder EP135 to add interest to the sky and ground.

I added the wagon stamp from the Country set 47 in front of the barn and cut out more of the milk cans to put in the wagon. Flower Soft was added to the bottom for grass.

I added a border to the top of the inside of the card and used the new Copper Flame EP453 embossing powder. I just love the look of this embossing powder. Teddy Brown EP187 embossing powder was used on the saying. for full instructions on how to make this card, please click here.
