In the Garden

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for a cute boy's card.

This card was another of the samples I made recently for Jayne at Stamposaurus and I liked it so much that I made a very similar card for a friend for her husband who is a keen gardener. I noticed we have a miniature iris in flower today along with about 5 crocuses. Hardly a magnificent display yet. The other 2 samples were very floral so I made this one with males in mind. The papers are the gorgeous Papermania Hampstead. I die cut the grass and fence with Sizzix dies, coloured the image with Promarkers and used glossy accents on the glass. The sentiment comes with the stamp.

I would like to enter this card into the challenge of In the Garden at Stampalot and Ladybug Crafts Ink Spring is in the Air challenge.

I will be posting my Winter Wonderland card tomorrow evening as I am out at a craft fair and then shopping. I hope you'll join us as we are staring Christmas only challenges from this week and we are starting you off nice and gently with a really easy challenge.
