As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. Because you are awesome!

Another card that looked better inside my head. I saw this layout and thought it was a bit different but I had an issue with the last bit of stamping of the Avery Elle Wood grain stamp, smudge the last bit so it had to be cut down. There was no chance I was going to risk making another when it was almost perfect.
I cut the top shape to size and then used the Tim Holtz Inkpads to blend colours using a punch circle for a  mask for my Sun.
I then stamped the wheat stamp from Technique Tuesday Grateful twice each time to give a bit of shadow effect. Then I used held my breath while I stamped the sentiment but it turned out fine.
My problem I think is I should of had a mat under the top part of my card, that and a bit more time when I made it last week.

So now it's YOUR turn. We can't WAIT to see what you want to show off! Happy Crafting!

I love the "looking over the fence" scene you've created with your stamps and masks. I always see mistakes as opportunities for improvement, and that's what you did. Blessings!
