DP2 Challenge ~ How Does Your Garden Grow


So! Today's card was a conglomeration of kinds. I saw a really cool card on Doreen's blog where she utilized a fence as the front of her card and just thought it was the most awesomist thing. She has a pattern on there too. I adjusted her pattern  somewhat  to fit my card and image requirements, but the inspiration is hers. . And as it turned out,  this project is perfect for this week's theme at Mo's Digital Pencil:
How Does Your Garden Grow
I grabbed my scraps and made a stitched landscape for the view beyond the fence which was quite fun!
The fence I used for a board to write a message on later.


And the lovely Mo Manning image below, colored with Prismacolors:
OOps! OMGoodness! I forgot to color the hinges! How did that happen?
You don't see that, ok? lol


So I hope you can play along with us!
I would like to play with:
Amber's Crafts and Things: Use a new technique (fence card)
Creative Cottage: white space (the fence)
A Spoonful Of Sugar: Tons Of Texture
Going Grey with Scrap Creations: Pick three flowers/buttons/ribbons
The Stamping Boutique: Handmade flowers
Happily Scrappin: Shaped card (does this count??)
Heart to Heart: Spring has Sprung
There's magic in the air: Lets use flowers
Crazy Challenge: Just add flowers

Awwwwwwwww. This is adorable. I've looked at this image several times to buy, but have never gotten around to it. You did a lovely job. And I love the "stitched" hills beyond the fence. (I've also wanted to open a fence or door, but there again...) Hugs, dj

This is great! Very crafty! I love the fence and how it looks like wood. Also love the stitched hills. It is perfect how it opens up and the scene is there. You keep doing different things which is awesome. I am in a crafting rut right now. Would not have noticed the hinges. What compels us to share the flaws with the world? I have to if I notice something. Anyway, colored or uncolored it is great!
