Wow, so much went into making this card. When Sabrina challenged us to make a stamp, I decided to take a piece of craft foam and cut it into a mosaic and glue it to a lid. I stamped that on the big circle and on the background. I then did faux barn board over that. I wanted to experiment some more and I took drywall tape and put it over the craft foam. It made a really neat stamped image. It is on the small circle. I also faux barn boarded it too. I was using the mojo 330 for my inspiration. It got altered a little bit in my mind. So it is a little taller and the ribbon is above, not behind the rectangle panel. Oh well. Added the flowers and butterfly. Really like how this turned out.

Great minds think alike. I was just admiring your beautiful card (and trying unsuccesfully to figure out how you did it) when I saw the coment you posted on my card. The blue flowers in my favorite shade of blue look awsome with the old wood look of the card. The butterfly is the perfect touch.

What a wonderful country feel to this, MariLynn. The burlap is the perfect setting for that wonderful mosaic barn board panel, which in turn is a great setting for your trademark butterfly. I love the milky, opalescent look you've got from the barn board.
