Repeat Impressions WHAT IF? Wednesday Sketch

Today is a WHAT IF? Wednesday from Repeat Impressions.  Wendy gives us a sketch, and we create our cards.  AND we ask you to play along!  Here is the sketch for this time:
Isn't it a fun one?  Create a card using this sketch and link it up to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.  One lucky participant from this month will win a $25 gift certificate for RI stamps - how awesome is that?  Check out the details and the other Rock Stars' samples.

Here is the scoop on my card:)  I stamped the image (3414-I, Arbor Fence) with PTI Fresh Snow ink.  I added detail white embossing powder, then brushed it off of the grass.  I heated it, then added the grass back in with a green marker.  I did a little piercing in the corners that the stamp didn't reach.  I used Circle Nestabilities to cut the white mat and the green scalloped mat.  I sponged Old Olive on the edges of the white circle and the Kraft square.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, also.  It's stamped with Old Olive ink and cut out with a Spellbinders tag die.  I sponged ink on the edges of that, too.  The ribbon is Old Olive and I believe the patterned paper is SU!, also.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

It is such a pretty card and very different from you usual style. I like it! The grass sounds like it took a lot of time :)
