Countryside card for sketch challenge...

Happy Labor Day! I hope you're having a wonderful time with your friends and family.

My family is hanging out today, and I'm stamping. Life is good! I mounted my Countryside stamp set for this Mojo Monday sketch, pairing it with Elegant Soiree dsp. My dad will love receiving this card - even with the Victoria trim.

The main card is Soft Suede card stock, with a layer of Baja Breeze, then pieces of Elegant Soiree dsp. I used the biggest circle punch Stampin' Up! carries for the truck and hand-cut the larger Soft Suede circle after tracing the lid from a brad container. It's hard to cut a perfect circle, which is why I opted to distress it with a Cutter Kit. *smile*

A knot of trim and a little jewelry tag with a glimmer brad finishes the card.
