Gardening at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week's Cardz 4 Guyz challenge is Gardening. Now as you probably know by now, my husband is a very keen gardener and blogs over at Mark's Veg Plot. He loves to grow vegetables, so when I saw this super decoupage from the Grumps series on the CD "The Best of La Pashe 2014" I absolutely had to use it for his birthday card!

All the papers are from the CD. The watering can is a wooden one from the Dovecraft Curiosity Corner range, inked and positioned to look as if it is watering the plants - although goodness knows, they don't need it in that rain! I've added a little "wet look" to the raindrops with Glossy Accents.



I'm sharing this with Allsorts Challenge - April Showers (which in my case bring May veg!) 
And thanks to the new rule that the card no longer needs to be completely covered with the patterned paper, I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for May.
