Thank You Garden Fence

Coffee of the Day - Sweet Potato

still working at making cards off of my long list to get sent out. then was reminded by several friends that I haven't made even ONE Christmas card yet this year. holy schmoleys, normally I have made at least a dozen by this time! so more cards to add to my personal 'honey do' list. grins!

anyhow, today's card uses an image by From the Heart as well as their current sketch challenge. papers are from the Basic Grey Vivienne collection, which just so happens to be part of one of the blog candies I'm giving away! I hope you have entered! :)

main image die is Spellbinders, watering can & leafy branch dies are Impression Obsession, pink ruffle ribbon is May Arts, sentiment sticker is SRM, little flowers are Prima, all buttons except big brown one are vintage, and ticket is from my stash.

faux stitching was added to all decorative paper, and stickles was added to Prima flower centers as well as the hyacinths.
