Good Morning All!
I hope you're all well! 
Here's a little card I made, perfect for the gardner in your life!

This one is for the Best Dad!
I've used the Gardening Tools decoupage download from La Pashe
I inked all the edges with a liquid chalk inkpad & added a matt of brown
card stock. The letters were cut using a sizzix die!
The hessian is from Lidl & was originally intended as a plant tie!
I've also added a couple of little gardening tool charms from my stash!
Here's a closer look at the decoupage.

This one should show the dimension but hey ho, you can't see it very well! lol

You can just about see that I've added some decoration on the 
inside of the card!
I hope you like it! Thanks for popping in!

  15. This is terrific, Dawn! Love the coloring, the burlap and those darling garden tool charms are wonderful. On the other hand, I'm glad I'm doing harvesting from my garden instead of planting. I'm so ready for fall and an end to the hot, dry summer.
