From the Garden


Whew!!  What a week it has been.  My computer died and being without it was hard.  I am back up and running although many of my files are gone and photos need re-organizing.  Guess it's a good thing I am off work for the next 2 wks.  Anyways, here is my card for today.  I am playing along with a challenge at Splitcoast and a challenge at CAS-ology
My garden is filled with ferns...such a lovely plant.  I wanted to incorporate that into my card and did so by using the fern as a mask and spraying it with Mr. Huey mist.  I added some splatters for interest and the sentiment from Rubberneckers.  The piece was then mounted on a scored card front. 
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look.
Have a great wknd. 

Supplies:  stamps; Rubbernecker/ Mr. Huey mist/ scoring tool/ twine
