These are the die cuts I used on my card. Memory Box die cuts Country House, Arboscello Tree and Wrought iron fence. Impression Obsession die 066-C, Poppy Stamp Wild Flowers Patch.

My background paper is from my scraps. I also used some copic markers to give the house a little color. R29, RV02, YG95 and B12.
