In The Garden

I don't know where this month has gone - I just don't get enough time to make and post cards at the moment as I'm trying to get my wilderness of a garden into shape while the weather is fine.

Coincidentally, I was asked to make a card with a garden theme for a work colleague for her uncle's 80th birthday..

The images are from an old 'masculine special' issue of Making Cards Magazine. I've fussy cut some of the images and used other garden related elements: a wood effect backing paper, 'leafy' patterned paper and die-cut fences. Finally, I've added the number using peel-offs coloured with a brown pro-marker.

I'm entering this effort into the 'Anything Goes' challenges at:
