Make The Cards Challenge #35

 Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge.
Today we are having a Theme + 1 challenge ...


 As you can see I chose to create today's card using one of my all time favorite Stampscape Stamps.  'Country Life' can be described in a few different ways ... for instance, could be Life on the Farm or in this case, Life in a Cabin in the Woods.

I have been trying to use up some of my scraps so sadly I can't tell you whose plaid designer papers I used today but when I saw our theme I knew exactly where to go for the start of my project.

I rarely use black card stock for my card base but it was the best choice for today with touches of white to draw more attention to the Buffalo paid and my image, which was colored using Tombow markers and TH distress oxide inks.  Faux stitching was done around the outer edge just to add yet another 'country' feel touch to my card.

Here's a peek at the inside where I've simply added a die cut sentiment.
This card would be perfect for a masculine birthday!
