I altered Korin's sketch by putting panel #4 behind #3 since I wanted my image to be the focus. I tried to do the card with the simplicity and somber tones with which Amish live their lives. Their quilts sometimes have one unexpected bright spot and that's why I included the red.

Very plain and simple.....just the way the Amish live their lives, Sallie! You definitely captured their style in this card~We have Old Order Mennonites living close by, and Wal-Mart has a hitching post for their horse and buggies while they shop! So serene & peaceful to see them travel~

This is simply beautiful Sallie.... I have always loved this image that looks like a courting buggie for the Amish... I have always admired the amish people for their plain life....I am reading a series of amish books right now by Shelley Shepard Gray... she is a very good writer...cant put the books down...Love your card... well done....
