Gardener's World

This is my Gardener's World card with a Flippin' Men stamp that I bought ages ago. I had forgotten about it until I saw Wendy's card, yesterday, on her blog and that reminded me so I dug it out. Thanks Wendy!

I used an ivory coloured large square card from Craft UK, via Joanna Sheen's site. The glittered backing paper is from a First Edition pad called Hideaway, and it's matted on to dark green card from Ross Paper. I cut some Spellbinders leaves in the dark green card and placed them down the right side. I added some dark green buttons along the bottom, they were from Create and Craft. I stamped the image with Memento black ink and coloured him with my Promarkers before matting on to more dark green card. I nearly forgot to say that I used my Distress Ink in Forest Moss around the edges of the image.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
