THE FARM IS IN A BOX!

The Farm Girl die set was just begging to have a scene created in a box!


G45's Home Sweet Home paper collection paired perfectly with the NEW die set! 
The Leafy Branch Die was used for the tree. I have colored all the die cut pieces with a combination of Copics, inks and chalk. The  Buttons were die cut and used as layers under the chipboard pieces.


Love those ducks and rooster! The little clumps of grass from the NEW Mini Bunnies set were just the right size! 


Thanks for looking and enjoy the hop!
