Karen Burniston's June 'What's In A Name' Challenge House Card

This month's challenge from Karen Burniston is called 'What's In A Name' and each of the designers is to make a card using elements beginning with her name initials.
My full name is Helen Caton (pronounced Kay-tun) Cryer, and I used the elements House, Clouds and Cow.

I used Crate Paper patterned cardstock with the House Pivot die, for my card base.

I added some more patterned paper cut with the grass die from the Outdoor Edges set, a Brownie the Cow, and used the House Pivot die to cut some extra fencing.

Next I added clouds from the All Seasons Tree set, some bunting (banners), and tufts of grass from the Garden Bench set.

For the front of the card, I used a stamp from the Farm Greetings Clear Stamps set, stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
