Craftmad Weekly Challenge - Garden

I set the themes for the weekly craft challenges over at Craftmad. This week it is 'Garden' as I have had these wheelbarrow and gardening stickers (Sticker Store) for a while and really wanted to use them. I am really happy with my card......although there was one stage I was going to toss it in the bin. Amazing how just taking one element off a card can change the whole thing.

I have used a white corrugated card (Blue Edge Crafts). The right hand side I attached Blue Bazzil Bling which I added the gardening tool stickers. I then punched holes down the side and hand stitched with gold thread. The wheelbarrow I coloured with gold and blue metallic pens and black permanent marker. I filled the wheelbarrow with a variety of yellow and orange punched out flowers and green leaves. I have added smaller white flowers to the centre of some, Kindy Glitz to others and a couple of pearl bling centres too. Finished the card with three little blue punched out butterflies.
