SRU Challenge #6!

I just finished this custom ordered card for someone whose mother is turning 60 and it was perfect timing to use it as a little inspiration for the Stamps R Us Challenge #6 all nature theme! The request for this card was that fall colors were used and a wheelbarrow of flowers was the focal point. How'd I do? I originally tried to use a scalloped Nestie for it but it didn't work out so I ended up trimming it and just having it be a straight edge. Because of this, it's cut a little bit too close but I didn't end up cutting off any of the good stuff so I guess I'm okay. I used my Prismas for the coloring and shading and inked the edges up a little bit to reflect a sky (which I can't even see in this picture but believe me, it's there!) The image is adhered with my trusty foam tape, as well as the sentiment which I got to use my smaller Nesties on. Hopefully the recipient, who I've been told loves to garden, really likes this card.

Don't forget to check out Challenge #6!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sure the recipient will love this card. There's something about the flowers in a wheelbarrow image that I just love. Doesn't matter what you do with them, they always make a great card. :)
