In The Garden

 Hello again. The title of this post is the name of the digi image, not where I have been today!! Oh that the weather would be so kind!

Even looking at this young gardener makes me long for some warmer weather. Hopefully all the cold is killing off the bugs.... unfortunately not the slugs and snails I discovered yesterday when I cut a cabbage.

I coloured this image from McMahon Vintage digitals with chalks, which was about the easiest part of the whole card, it turned out.

I then mounted it on some Ebony Real Wood Paper  from McMahon Five store.

The battle came with how to mount it after that.... third time it finally worked with a simple kraft coloured card embossed with the Branches folder, and sponged with Tea Stain Distress ink.  

I paper pierced the corners before mounting the whole on some bottle green card - the second photo gives you a closer look at the real wood  paper, which is fabulous to work with - it cuts like a dream in both my cutter and in dies.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.
