The simplicity of the country! Love it. For this card, I stamped the image of the barn onto vanilla card stock using Walnut Stain distress ink. The sentiment is stamped using Barn Door distress ink. I adhered that panel to the brown card front and embossed with Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder. I scored the vanilla panel on the top and bottom and added the red ink along that line.

This is the inside. I used Copic markers to color the image and again the Barn Door ink for the sentiment.
