Hillbilly Music

We went to a true country birthday party. One of the girls on my ball team turned 50 and held her party at her farm, in the shop. It rained all day so the country roads were very muddy. At least the shop was heated. Figured this might explain the images I've used.
My images were from Digi Doodle Shop which is sadly no longer open. I colored them using my Prismacolor pencils. Some faux stitching around both the outside and inside of the card for the frames. And I used Kraft cardstock as my card base. The big flower is a Silhouette cut file I used dp's for and distressed. The little flowers were from my stash. Brads make up the flower centers. The sentiments and musical notes were all created by me in my Silhouette program and run through the printer. The hat on the jug player is colored to look like a Saskatchewan Roughriders ball cap, our Canadian Football League team and Sharon is a big fan, as are almost all the people that live in Saskatchewan. It was a lot of coloring, but I'm really pleased with my "custom" project.
