The East Wind launched yet another great image this month and I had so much fun creating this piece for my neighbour who's an avid gardener.
When I first met her and her husband, I got a chance to see her garden and found out she was giving away some strawberry plants. I gladly took some with me home and began planting.
A couple weeks ago, she gave us some roma tomatoes, a cantaloupe and some pepper plants.
So I decided to make this card for her.
I took a couple pictures to show the embossing and some of the supplies used.
I forgot to include a rad stamp roller I used as a background image on the card.
The "weeds" were cut using my laser cutter and I glued them down.
Quite the fun project.
Until next time and come say hi or subscribe for more inspiration. I'm not an avid card maker but I sure like to collect tools and try out a new technique.

It's been several months since I participated in Unky's challenges at http://theeastwind.com
This month's challenge using die cuts or punch, I decided to use my tag punch to create a gift tag.
Since Unky's digis could be resized easily, I was able to print 9 tags on one standard 8.5"x11" card stock and cor away using copic markers and coloring pencils.
I finished the tag with the tag punch and distressed it with chalk ink and some twine.
Hope you enjoy!
Unky's blog runs 2 challenges a month with freebies like this one every month.
