Hello, Avril here today with a card featuring those sweet kids from the Harvest set of stamps.

I wanted to create a feeling of an uncomplicated life down on the farm, so I've used rustic colours to mat and layer as well as some paper piecing for their clothes. I added a strip of burlap to anchor my retro flower and stamped some words from one of the sentiment stamps in the Think and Wonder set, which I think suits so many images.

Well, thanks for calling in and don't forget you still have a few days left to enter the May Show us your AO art challenge and you can find all the details here.

Hi Avril, you've definitely achieved what you set out to do. I love the image of the children and the background matches their clothes beautifully. The burlap strip and flower finish your card off perfectly. Crafty hugs, Sandra X
