The best kind of gardening

This week at Willow Sketchie Challenge we have a fabby sketch by Claire :

The theme is Use Three Different Papers.You can choose either the sketch or theme.If you’re feeling up for the challenge you can combine the two! You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Garden Weekly Digital Stamp from Willow Designs and coloured Walter with ProMarkers.The hearts on the wallpaper have been coloured green for a leafy feel.I chose some muted papers that I thought would go with the gardening theme and the reverse of some Papermania Kraft card.The face is quite dark whereas this side has a more natural fibrous texture.To keep in with this I distressed all the edges.To finish the card I added some buttons threaded with paper twine.This is now the fourth Father’s Day card I’ve made.Yippee!I’m on a roll.
