Sisterhood of Crafters - Use Dies

Hello dear friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over

 Our hostess today is Terri and the theme she has chosen is:

Here's what I have to share ...
 The dies I have used today are:

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Farm Scene Card Panel
 Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Thinking Of You
Since this card was created as part of a gift set for an Amish girl, I thought
the farm scene was appropriate and I've left plenty of room for her to 
write a personal note inside.
Here's a peek at how I colored & pieced my card . . .

I die cut my scene twice.
On the first cut I colored in the pop out pieces that are the
sky and grassy areas.
On the second cut I popped out all the pieces then attached
my 'outline' to another sheet of white card stock
so I would have a place to reinsert & adhere my popped out (colored) pieces.
 Some of my colored pieces weren't cut well so I reinserted
my die cut panel into the die and ran it through again.  THEN I began
gluing each piece into the appropriate spot.
My coloring was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ...
