Take the Long Way Home

The inland of this state is just beautiful, the western side of the mountains where the land just lays flat and trees get further apart, real grazing country of the west where I spent some time as a child.  Hmm peace and tranquility.

This week on SCS, DellsDani's musical challenge was 'take a back road'.  How appropriate for this stamp from my new set from Stamp-It.  So inked it up, stamped, cut it out, coloured it in with w/c pencils.  Looks fantastic!!

Knew straight away that Pinecone and Parakeet were the only 2 colours to do justice to this, with a cardbase of Oatmeal.  What else to use as embossed background than Tim Holtz embossing folder Tree, and embellish with natural colours/items, brads, flower, raffid and a button!!  Perfect!!

Thank you for the pattern, I'm going to write it down, and after I settle down, I'm going to make a few of them. The prices on them are ricidulous.
