Gardeners' Delight

 The title of this post is the theme for the latest Allsorts Challenge and as I'm told it is World Cardmaking Day I decided to make one today for the challenge.  I found some paper and card in suitable colours and also dug out a few plants and pots which were leftovers from previous projects and then set about stamping and die cutting the greenhouse layers.  The square of soft green card has been embossed for a bit of extra texture.  As is usual, I did a couple of 'dry runs' with the components until I was happy with the arrangement before sticking everything down and that's it - a challenge covered and something made on World Cardmaking Day, double whammy.😉

Greenhouse and Stamped Leaves - Garden Greenhouse set Stampin' Up
Pots and Plants - leftovers, Sizzix dies
Embossing - bark texture 3D embossing folder Stampin' Up
Background - DSP from Docraft several years ago

  7. Your entry for the challenge is perfect! I wish we had greenhouses and fresh plants to enjoy all year round, but as winter slowly makes it's way in, those things will soon be gone for another year. Great card!
