I started with a base of Basic Black then I used Lucky Limeade and put it through the houndstooth ef. I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distressing ink. I cut my second and third layers and did it the same as the others. I used Whisper White for my image panel. I sponged the grass with Lucky Limeade, Apricot Appeal, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue and Marina Mist. Then I stamped my image from MFP using Basic Black ink. I had to touch it up with my black SU marker. Put the image on Calypso Coral. I then added the brad and twine. Inside it says " Sit Back and Relax." I think this stamp set is beautiful and MFP stamps stamp so nicely.
This is for the Twisted Sistah's weekly challenge. We were to make a card that had a sky. If you would like to join us please use the Keyword TSC0916.

You've greated a gorgeous, serene scene. What a beautiful place to kick back and relax! Love your background sponging behind the silhouette - beautifully done. Also, I LOVE the pop of coral ... really brings out the main image. Nicely done ... and into my favs!
