Card for Joans Garden Challenge

I made this card, but I am not happy with it, it is not one of my better cards, I used my own cardstock, and the fence was a memory box die, with the stamp a free one from Craft Stamper Magazine, the butterfly is a Spellbinders die. Not Happy with it, but as it is not my style I won't make another one.

challenge on milo lilja's blog

Hi , This card is made for a monthly  challenge on Milo's blog, http://milolilja.net/. The challenge was to follow the sketch, which I have tried to do.   The photo is a stamp by Tim Holtz, Lost and Found, while the lettering is a Stampendous stamp, the border cutters are a Nellie Snellon die (MFB23), black cadstock is from my stash, and the background is from "Move to the Music" paper Pad by Cre8tive.

Hi there!!   I made this card recently, it was a mistake, because when I put the card through with the Tim Holtz die I did not put the card in properly and cut the top off!!!   I decided not to waste it, so made it into a convertable.   I used Bo Bunny paper as a background and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder "postale"  I then cut to posts of the  car off and decorated it, it also put an acrylic windscreen on the front, cut gears with Tim Holtz movers and shakers die and cut the running board and wheels etc with a seperate piece of "found" card, so here it is!  personally I am very happy with this card. I accented the "carte Postale" wording with a kids brush pen.   - Jasann
