There are some really wonderful images and sentiments in this set.  I have used a few of them on today's card.  This sentiment in particular could be my husband's theme.  Our vegetable garden is always a work in progress.  Every year the garden grows in size.  Last year, he began to plant things in blocks and this year he laid down saw dust chips in between the blocks and added a couple of color spots with flowers.  He works outside and on lawns and landscaping as his profession.  Pride in craftsmanship is nothing new to him.  Anyway, on to my card.

I like the way you ripped the brown paper to create the ground and having the mushrooms coming out of it.

Especially like the torn edged brown layers to look like ground. Like the coloring & whimsy to this stamp set. When I think of gnomes I think of the statue one a friend painted for me & gave to me when I was younger and I still have it.

Great shading. Your torn paper ground looks great.

Kelli Hull said...

OOO Landscaping is my #1 choice for a profession but alas... too much math and school... I just figured you buy extra and return what wasn't used! ;) Great card by the way! :)

PS: I'd love to see a picture of your garden!!!! Flowers are important in a veggie garden to attract bees!!!!

Karen said...
