Oh dear :( What happened to the lovely sunshine? It's been positively vile here today, I wanted to snuggle down under my duvet and sleep until the sun comes back...d'you think I should've been born a tortoise or a squirrel, so I could hibernate all through the bad weather...?!!
So, its my FIL's birthday at the weekend, and being so close to Father's Day I always find it hard to come up with a theme for his cards, especially as he doesn't really have any hobbies...UNTIL NOW that is! In his mid 60s, he has JUST decided to get into gardening, and is planning to grow his own veggies for the very first time! Yay for him, AND yay for me! A theme for his card, and here it is.
I knew straight away that I wanted to use this adorable Digistamp Boutique image. I coloured it up with Promarkers and layered the boots and seed packets on foam pads for dimension.
I used kraft card and bakers twine for a rustic feel, and distressed the edges with inks. I added a circular sentiment cut out with a nestie, and finally I coloured 3 card candi dots using the same Promarkers as the main image. I am rather chuffed with how it turned out!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
