Hello everyone Gabriela here with my first project for Quick Quotes. First let me say that I am delighted to be joining this talented group and I am really looking forward to the year!

This is a sweet card that could be a Valentine's Day card or just a card to say I love you.

I started with Farmhouse 104

I cut a piece to A2 size, 4.25" x 5.5" and then added the scallops to make a fence by tracing the bottom of a small container.

Then I used Powder Puff Inks on my craft mat with a water brush to add some aging to the fence. Shown here are Mahogany, Milk Chocolate, and Navy.

I pressed the ink pad onto my craft mat and then used a water brush to pick up color.

Then I cut out 3 small banners from a Words & Phrases sheet and inked the edges.

Then I punched holes in the tops and threaded them onto a piece of  ribbon. Then I applied double sided tape and cut a semi-circle out of one of the fence panels to make it look more real.

I decided to ink a background that would show behind the fence just a little. I used heavy weight white card stock for my base.  I wanted it to look like the sky, so I used Navy, Seabrook, and Aqua inks.

After seeing it, I decided it needed some grass, so I took a scrap piece of white card stock and inked it up using Green Leaf.

I drew some grass blades and then fussy cut the whole thing.

I attached the grass and that completed the card.

I hope this inspires you to have some fun with your supplies, happy crafting!
