I don't have any farm or tractor stamps, alas. Hmmmmm. However, I do have some farm animal stamps from Your Next Stamp that I used and my inspiration came from the red and metal of the tractor and "farmy" things to inspire my card --
As I stated, I used the farm animal stamps from Your Next Stamp. The sentiment and the "snort' are also Your Next Stamp and coordinate with the farm animal set. I fussy cut the animals and placed them inside a photo die (Taylored Expressions) I cut from pattern paper. The wonky circle in the top corner behind the photo die is the inside of a wreath die from WPlus9. It looked like a saw blade to me so I cute one from silver paper along with the curly stitched dies, also from Your Next Stamp. I thought these would resembled barbed wire. For my background I chose red woodgrain paper that reminded me of the side of a barn.
For Following Challenges:
I used the sketch from Fusion for layout inspiration --
