Garden Fence - Craft a Scene

Over at Craft a Scene we are having a new design team call along with our Spring Flowers challenge.  The DT position is a 4 month term, you need to have a blog and love to make scenic projects.  

Team members make 2 projects per month and comment on entries. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please email me at the email address found on the Craft a Scene blog.  The deadline for entering the DT Call is May 31st.

My card this week features two Make it Crafty images surrounded by FlowerSoft stems and EK Success flowers.

I combined the two images using Gimp (free software) and printed them on Copic coloring paper. After coloring and die cutting I decided to add some dimension with FlowerSoft and punched flower stems.
