Colorful Seasons & Barnwood

Besides the spectacular views, one of the things that attracted us to this house, when we were looking online at properties, was the beautiful barnwood wall in the living room. I'm sure this house has a great story to tell, if only the walls could talk! We know that the wood was taken from an old barn down by the river, although we're not sure where. I do know the oak plank walls in my craft room were from an old oak tree that used to stand right next to the house.

Since we had to have the dead ash tree cut down, I'm hoping to use some part of it to preserve its memory with the homestead, too. Though I haven't figured out just how, yet.

So, the beautiful barnwood walls, as seen in the photo above, were my inspiration for today's card. Some Shimmery White cardstock was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, then I dragged Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, and Basic Gray ink pads lightly over it to give it that weathered look.

The Hearth & Home Framelits die window frame was cut from Whisper White Thick cardstock, and the cat was punched in Basic Black. Yeah, I know, it doesn't look like my Punkin at all, but I was fresh out of orange tabby cardstock, LOL.
