Peaceful Cabin for Kylie Bertucci's Vote For me Highlights

Hi, Crafty People!
I've made this beautiful Thank You card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights. This means I'm asking you to vote for me so I can participate in her Top 10 Blog Hop! CLICK HERE TO VOTE! Look for entry #6. Just click on the heart in the upper right-hand corner.

Now some details about this card. Thanking someone for a kind act you're thankful for will be easy with a card like this.

I'm going to hit on the highlights of this card, but you can download a complete tutorial at the bottom of the post.

This card is a bench-style card constructed with Crumb Cake cardstock scored at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 5 1/2", and 6 3/4". The beautiful Peaceful Cabin stamp set  and the Cabin Dies are used to construct this card. From this view you can see the shape of the card.
Take a close look at the background. I achieved that look by using a baby wipe, yes, that's right, a baby wipe. Soft Succulent ink was swiped across the lower two-thirds of a 4 1/4" x 6 3/4" piece of Basic White cardstock, and Balmy Blue on the upper third. After swiping the ink across the Basic White piece, 1" was cut off EACH end TWICE. This leaves a 2 3/4 piece in the middle section.
To form the mountain peaks, I tore a Post-It note in the shape of the mountain, then sponged with Soft Suede ink on each section.

The grass was colored with a Dark Soft Succulent Blend, leaving a curved area to resemble a drive way. The fences from the Cabin Die set were added. On the back I added a 2 3/4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to stamp my thank-you sentiment on.

I hope you like my card and will take a minute to vote here for my card. Just click on the heart in the upper right-hand corner. Thank you so much!
