Father's Day Potted Flowers

This card is for my DH for Father's Day. I used a wonderful digi image called "potting flowers digital stamp" from priscillastyles store, which can be found here: http://priscillastyles-store.blogspot.com/. The layout is this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC104 - which can be found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/

I printed the image twice and cut out the gloves and potted plant to pop up to give it dimension. Love the way it came out! Dirtied things up a bit to look like he just came from the garden.

This was a fun image to work with! My husband loves to garden and has been doing a LOT of it since we moved into our new home - and yes, (people have asked) that is our back yard in the background. But on the side he's built a beautiful rock garden and is working on the front now. So....this is perfect for him for Father's Day this year!
