Today's card is using the awesome stamp set, Scenic Selections. If you like making scenes for your cards, scrapbooks, etc., you'll love this set. I used four of the images from the set to make my card..trees, fence, grass along the fence, and taller grasses in the pasture.  The sentiment is from the Get Reel set featured yesterday. I stamped and stamped off part of the trees. Colored images with Copics

Paper: MFP 100 lb. premium white cs, dp is Hazel Plaid from Glitz Design
Gold brads
Hand cut the banner
Ink: Memento Bahama Blue for sponging sky, and Rich Cocoa

I made an extra card for the hop, going clean and simple. I thought the scene was good for a sympathy card. From the Scenic Selections set, I used a tree, fence, boulder, and grasses. The sentiment is from the Oopsy Daisy set featured on Tuesday.
I think my plaid border and mat look black in this photo but it is brown.
