Summer in the Country ~ MMSC7

Welcome to Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #7. For this week's sketch I wanted to do a sort of "Summer in the Country" theme. I was completely enchanted with Linda's card a couple of weeks ago and so must give complete credit to her for my inspiration this week. I loved her card and wanted to make something that had the same kind of charm as hers. What do you think?

Don't forget, this month you are playing for the joy of it AND the $ Midnight Madness Mad Money $! We love when you come play with us!
Supplies: Stamps by SU and Rubbernecker, DP by My Minds Eye and Core-dinations, ribbon, SU inks & Distress inks by Ranger, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilites die~cuts, Shimmer mists and machine stitching.
