Dimension and Texture

The challenge at Tuesday Throwdown #63 is dimension and textures. This week MY GRAFICO supplied the design team with some digital images to work with. I chose Garden Tools from the Pretty Primitive stamp set. The cute flowers are my Stampin'Up! paper. I stamped, colored, and cut out my pot and tools. The gloves are paper pieced. I'm using a Martha Stewart punch called Flower Patch. The rest of my recipe is below.

It is a busy week for me. Be sure to check back Wednesday to see what I'm up to...something good!!!

what a delight of a card.....sweet gardening image...fab dimension and texture....

by the way....don't hold your breath for my hydrangea.....three in the garbage and no more efforts planned.....stubby fingers, weak peepers, poor glue skills had me covered in adhesive and little petals....a sad sight.....I know when to quit...like baseball, three strikes and I am out....lol
