Stamp and the Country!

Well, as I've said before, I'm a city girl now. I grew up on a farm though, and my Dad and my brother are still farmers. So, from time to time, you'll be seeing farm-themed cards here! This one is for my Dad's birthday. It's pretty simple, but I think he will like it. I really like the barn image with the silos. There were silos on our farm when I grew up. Also, the buttons I used all came from a stash that I inherited from Mom when Dad gave me all of her old sewing supplies. I have a big box of used buttons from her sewing projects. She used to save buttons from worn out shirts and use them again. She was very frugal. Heck, these buttons might have been from a shirt that my Dad wore at one time!

Stamps: Down on the Farm (CTMH), My Farm (CTMH).
Paper: Sarsaparilla (CTMH), Twilight textured cardstock (CTMH), Barn Red cardstock (CTMH).
Embellishments: Twill ribbon (CTMH), brown grosgrain (Michael's), assorted buttons.
