Inspired By ... Over the Meadow #9

Inspired By ... Over the Meadow - inspired a number of design dreams - do you do this, too?  Here is Laurel's inspiration for us this week:


If you know me at all, you'll remember that I have an endless supply of embossing folders ... 50+ if truth be told... a few were the perfect answer to create that gorgeous texture for my card.

Inspired By:  color, the stitching, and that darling house tucked into this gorgeous Tuscan landscape - it's sings Italy to me - how about you?  how about we just get to my card?


Always fun to see how you are inspired, we hope to see you in the gallery.  Thanks for playing cards with us, and thanks for stopping by again today!

Supplies:  SU Old Olive [middle section], PTI Simply Chartreuse [bottom], and Limeade Ice [top].  Those trees, and houses came from my snippets stash and are from the - E.H. Home & Hearth set of dies.   Altenew Beautiful Lady [sentiment], Paper Smooches Borders 1 die for hills, Darice and Lifestyle Crafts embossing folders - sorry they aren't named!

Absolutely adore this card: the embossed hills and sun, the little houses and trees! Swoon! Perfect take on the inspiration photo (btw I agree, it is definitely Tuscany)

I so would have done something similar to this if you hadn't, Michele. It reminds me of a scenic quilt with stitched lines instead of embossed.
