Plant Kindness, Gather Love

How are you doing on this Friday in your part of the world?  It has been so cold here again, that we need something really vibrant for a card today.  I pulled out one of the CardMaps Sketches from Becky Fleck and a great digital image from Power Poppy called Plant Kindness.  I’m making a series of cards for my sister in law and one of her requests was for gardening cards.  She has a massive garden and always plants new and interesting vegetables each year, so this image is just perfect for her!

I found a few great sheets of older designer paper that had a really wild print on it and thought it would make a perfect map for my colouring and a backdrop for the image.  

Here’s the CardMaps Sketch I based it off of, I just used an oval rather than the circle, so that adjusted all the other panels too.  

A little wood veneer heart and some twine finish it off.  

Don’t forget that you can enter our Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge this month to Grab a Map  from one of Becky Fleck’s CardMaps this month.  Enter at the Power Poppy Blog and you could win a $50 shopping spree to the Power Poppy store!  And you can also enter just by commenting on the CardMaps Blog for a $25 shopping spree!  Lots of ways to win this month.

That sweet wooden heart is a perfect finishing touch. Your sister-in-law will certainly love all your gardening cards!! Warm hugs, and keep cozy -- spring will eventually come!! xoxo
