Getting an allotment


I was asked to make a retirement card for someone who is getting an allotment and as luck would have it I found a Hunkydory topper which was perfect. I won a set of toppers ages ago from a magazine and some of them have come in useful although they are rather large for 6" cards.

I used First Edition Gardenia paper and added a piece of diecut fence using a Marianne die and a burlap butterfly. The sentiment was computer generated. The large topper didn't leave much room for embellishing.
