Double Dutch Harvest Blessing Card

Hi stamping buddies, I have a card to show you that we made at a party a couple weeks ago. My hostess said she doesn't care to color in things and her husband is a farmer so I thought this card was so appropriate for her party. It is a frosty morning her in Grygla and I am thinking about how much I am blessed that I didn't have to take that long 12 hour drive to see Mom as she was in the hospital yesterday and got a breathing treatment and was feeling so much better she told me I didn't need to come. I have busy schedule the next two weeks and it would mean cancelling a few things. Yes I know I could do that but when you just are planning to go and have a full plate it was just too overwhelming. I went to bed early and slept till 7:30 this morning from the stress. I called her this morning and she sounded a whole lot better. Thank God!

Okay onto my card, I got the Double Dutch cut from Splitcoaststampers and it is easy to do. For my image I stamped the tractor in Soft Suede and then made a mask. I die cut it out and then I used saran wrap on my ink pad to color the grass and sky.  I paper pierced the with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack. The tag is made with the Duo Ticket Punch and the retired Designer Label Punch. I put a strip along the back side of my card to hold the ribbon on when you untie it.

Here are the details: 
Stamp Sets: Harvest Blessings, Made For  You, Border Banter
