Farm Fresh-A Sunny Day Crafting Challenge

It's time for another challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting.  Here is what I came up with.

I came up with this card based on the inspirational photo for this challenge.

Now I am sure you are wondering how I came up with a pig and a chicken when the picture is of a barn.  That is the fun part of these challenges.  You can interpret the picture any way you want.  You might decide to use the colors from the picture, or the picture may represent something to you or you may choose to go with the theme of the picture.  That is what I chose to do.

When I looked at the photo it reminded me of my grandparents farm when I was younger. I loved going over there.  So I decided to recreate something that reminded me of my grandparents farm as this picture said, barn and farm to me.  Now on to the card details.

My card base is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card cut from Kraft card stock.  Next I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  My patterned paper is from my stash and was cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".

The pig and chicken are from the Country Life cartridge and were cut at 3 3/4".  Once I cut all the layers I adhered them together and attached them to the front of the card with some foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I used a small tag punch to punch out the sentiment.  I then adhered it to my card front.

Now it is your turn. Make a project that this photo speaks to you.
