CASology CUE Card #67: COUNTRY!

CASology CUE Card #67: COUNTRY!

I will admit, 
I was having some trouble with this cue.  
I wanted to go safe and do some country wreath themed cards, 
however lately I have been
wanting to go bolder.
The CASual Fridays Breathe Set is bold.
It speaks volumes about caring.
I also have been itching to use this bold solid stem
that has been floating around my craft desk.
Using distressed inks gives it a country feel

COUNTRY can be many things.
A location, a theme, a state of mind.
What does it mean to you?

Gorgeous - in this colour, it reminds me of a cornstalk in the country - you nailed it!

Benzi said...

Oh, that stem is done in a beautiful color and, for some reason, it brought to mind Jack and the Beanstalk....just because it looks as if it is growing upward and upward. :-) Gorgeous card with a wonderful sentiment.
