This mood board took me "down on the farm".

Bloom & Grow
We live in a farming area where I see windmills and wheel barrows on a daily basis.  Fields of crops and cows, gardens of flowers and vegetables and poultry are everywhere.  So, it seemed fitting to use this patterned paper for my card.  It includes wheelbarrows and also a windmill that is basically a wheel of blades controlled by the speed of the air movement.
I included three layers of matting that coordinate with the patterned paper.  The white lace doily made a good mat for the focal image.  I adhered the windmill, barn and wheelbarrow together and gave them dimension with foam tape.  The sentiment banner is also a sticker.

Beautiful! Loving those gorgeous Designer Papers--you always have the best! ;) The wheelbarrow is a perfect accent, and you are correct, a windmill, it is just a wheel of blades lol I have one around the corner. And that doily die is soooo pretty! Well done!

Darlene said...

I love how you play with papers, Vicki, and I do adore this farm collection! There are certainly all kinds of things with wheels and a windmill is one I didn't think of, but you're spot on with that. Love the old timey wheelbarrow, too. Your cards are always such a treat!

You use your designer papers to the max and your cards are so sticking! This one is a great example of the design paper and the focal point still pops out.

What a beautiful card!! The papers are just as sweet as can be and the addition of the doily and old wheelbarrow are so reminiscent of the countryside. It sounds like you live in a wonderful area.

What a fabulous use of that patterned paper. I love the black background, it really makes that doily pop. This is just beautiful with all the farm elements. Super cute and sweet too.

When you live around farming communities wheels are everywhere on buggies of all sizes, tractors, wheelbarrows and I love all the colors from crops and flowers. I love the paper pack you used. This is a beautiful card. Devon
