Grow A Happy Life


I'm delighted!! 
This card was chosen in the Top 3 at The Crafty Addicts Challenge #12 Anything Goes/Springtime


I used the beautiful Lovely Garden digi set from Vera Lane Studio to make this card.  
The sentiment is from the Grow a Happy Life set.

The background is design paper called Retro Floral. The brown paper was hand torn so that the white torn edge was visible. The papers were lightly gessoed to mute down the colours. Black paint splashes were applied. The images were resized and coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, then fussy cut and mounted on foam pads to give dimension. The grass fringe was hand cut, coloured in a puddle of distress ink and water, then attached on foam pads.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
