Hollyhocks by the Fence
I made a card today for the DirtySpiesJuly14 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. To enter, you should find a birthday/party card from a Dirty Dozen, current or past. This is the card I cased: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2165342?&si=MakiJ Her card is beautiful.
I'm using a new hollyhock die, a new fence die, and a grass punch. I stamped clouds in the background. The gingham ribbon is threaded through the die.
I made my card as a side opener which I don't really like to make. But, I was trying to accomodate the tall hollyhocks. I did finally cut some of them off, though.
