Birthday Card For A Friend

I made this card for the friend who we travelled during our trip to America earlier this year. My inspiration for the card was the picture below the card. While visiting Yosemite National Park we drove down part of a road and all of a sudden rounded a bend and the church nestled in the trees came into view. As soon as I saw the scene I said " I have stamps at home that look just like that Scene". So when it came to making a card for our friend this year I knew I had to use these Stampscape Stamps to make the card.  After stamping the scene I used masks and distress inks to colour it. I'm glad to say that our friend loved the card.






Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
