June Nacho Blog Hop

A friend posted this picture on FB of White Sands, NM. I decided to see if I could make a card with a masculine flavor using this image as my inspiration. What do you think? Did I capture it? Here's my card:

I really had fun doing this. I have seen others be inspired by magazine ads or pictures but I had never attempted it.The challenge was to accomplish it with current stamps and colors. Actually, not too hard. I used In the Meadow for the mountains, grass and main plant and Thoughtful Banners for the Sentiment. My base card is Sahara Sand. I can't tell you all the different colors I used to achieve the look I was after, but the colors in my scan are not as vivid as the actual card-especially the greens. The back green is Garden Green and the front is Always Artichoke. Hope you are challenged to CASE something!
