A Rack of Friends

Tuscan is not my decorating style - but there sure were a lot of lovely things in the Bella Soleil inspiration web site for the Split Coast Inspiration challenge this past Saturday.

I was inspired by one of the examples Steph showed us - this wall wine rack
And here is the card I created

I used Grunge Paper for my rectangles. I embossed them with a bark embossing folder and colored them with Ranger Distress stains.  I embossed the card base with my Bricked embossing folder. Then I sponged the panels and the card base with Brushed Cordauroy.

I layered the panels onto the card popping up alternating ones. I cut the sentiment with a Hexagon Nestie, sponged it before taking it out of the die and layered it onto the card with foam tape.

My sentiment is from the Discover Word Set by Rubbernecker.

I participated in the Virtual Stamp Night over on Split Coast this weekend -  so I'll be having several cards to show you over the next few days!
