Secret Garden

Good morning lovelies!
Here I am with today's card!

I made a 6x6inch Kraft card using Secret Garden
one of the new Clear Polymer Stamps from La Pashe!
This card is actually intended for a man but I guess it might
be suitable for any keen gardener or indeed anyone who likes
to spend time in the garden!

I used my usual FlexMarker & ProMarker combo to colour up the image.
then matted it onto some brown CS which has a punched border.

I added a little bit of raffia mesh some buttons & some twine.
I just had to add a little bunch of keys too!
The papers are First Edition, Bo Chic (I think)
All of these items have been in my stash for ages!

A little side view to finish up.
