For a gardener

I'm having a really hectic time at the moment,working late,rushing out again and generally running round like a headless chicken...but I just couldn't resist the great sketch provided by the lovely Claudia for Friday Sketchers
My card is made with papers from My Minds Eye and I drew the garden images a while ago for another card and saved them.
The Xcut impress fence punch which I used left a great little cut out which I made into a garden rake by adding a cocktail stick as a handle. This was a good chance,too to use my Carl Craft grass punch on the corners of the image.I added a little raffia for texture and a couple of Woodware punch leaves.
There is a drop of Inkssentials glossy accents on the watering can to look like water,too.


  1. Great card Ruth, love it! Louise x

  2. A lovely well thought out card. perfect for a gardener. Elaine

  3. This is brilliant Ruth! The little picket fence looks great and I love these papers, perfect for the gardening theme! :)
    Love, Georgia xx

  4. Love the card Ruth, especially the way you used your leftovers from the fence to create the bottom of the rake, clever you!
