Tuscan Vineyard & a Challenge

While I had the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set out for Monday's card, I stamped the vineyard scene to be colored later. Well, later turned out to be last night!

So here I had this lovely scene, just waiting to be used in some way. After looking at several challenges, the Shopping Our Stash challenge #297 "Tie One On" sparked my interest. I thought the scene didn't need too much added, but maybe a little burlap ribbon, twine, and metallic thread would be just right. Then the background looked too plain, so I raided the box of bits for the embossed background (shhh, contraband!). Perfect! This card will be left without a greeting, so I can write a note for any occasion inside.

Off to the big city* today for some garden stuff. Have to hurry and get home before the nasty weather hits. Have a blessed day!

*Big city = population of about 30,000, compared to my town of less than 3,000. I love it!!!

  1. This is absolutely stunning -- exactly what I expect from you when you color!

  2. Oooh, so pretty, and that twine and the strip of ribbon are just the right feel for the scene... thanks for choosing SOS to share with! By the way: I could type your exact last few sentiments about going to the big city... populations match, and beating the weather! (I'm in the north Sierra).

    1. Thanks, Mimi! (I wouldn't trade living here for all the tea in China!)


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
