Today's offering

I had no idea I was going to make this when I started out this afternoon.  I had planned to do some stitching so there you go. The Tim Holtz rosette die does double up as a fence too.  I think you could probably cut between each fold to separate the fence posts for a variation but I liked this. The background paper is a piece I had from an old Stampington mag but the leaves and flowers are from my own background stash.  I do love it when the weather gets better and I can photograph my creations in the garden.

Not only do I love what you've done but I love the fact that you photographed it outside. If only I had a suitable tree in my garden!

Fabulous card Carol. Love how you've used the rosette flower as a fence, you can also snip part the way down each fold and then fold back alternate sections to create a different design. I love this die.
