 Karen from High Hopes has joined us this month and here is her card

For today's card I am using High Hopes stamps....."Herbie", "Grass Patch" and "Signpost with sentiment". 

I created the background using a large scalloped oval and weathered wood distress ink with a foam pad. I stamped Herbie and masked him then stamped the grass patch. I embossed the images with black and colored them with Tombow markers. The barn board paper is from Happy Harvest paper by Doodlebug. For the inside I added the signpost and Happy Birthday sentiment.
