What a wet one it is! Ten days time and it is mid-summer day!!
Firstly I want to say welcome to my new followers. Thank you for 'joining up'- I so appreciate it.
We are continuing our challenges at Make My Monday with June and Associated Events, and of course Father's Day is in the middle of June. If you do not want to make a Father's Day card then a Masculine card would be fine.
I guess my card may be considered multi-gender, but certainly if my dear father was still with us (he passed away last September on his 92nd birthday), then this is what I would have given him. One of Dad's abiding interests was plants, particularly his garden, but also the countryside. And he was certainly a 'seedsman', collecting seeds around the garden and anywhere else he could get them, and germinating them in his greenhouse for the following year. Hence my choice of stamp.
The background has been brushed with distress inks in various shades of green and I have overstamped in leaves from a Stampin Up set, I have also stamped extra leaves and cut them out for the embellishment. The main image is a Stampendous stamp. I love their botanical images. The flowers are Prima.
