WT440 ~ Sunrise on the Farm ~

There is nothing more beautiful than watching the sun rise or set in the country.  There is something so very peaceful about it.  I find assurance of the love of our Creator in the beauty of His handiwork...  the glorious colors...  sights...  It never ceases to leave me breathless. 
 
Today's card celebrates that first peek of dawn.  For simplicity, I stamped the image in black on white card stock and used a circle punch mask to create my sun.  I first sponged yellow ink and then a soft orange.  I then used a straight edge (paper) to create my "rays."  Super easy!  This card is for the Ways to Use it challenge at Split Coast.


Now for the products I used...
 
 for the sentiment...
 
 
and Barn
for the image...
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
