Grow Where You Are Planted

Hello friends today I'm sharing another card created using one of the newly released Spellbinders Die D-lites called Succulent Garden - this time I am using the actual succulent as opposed to the Aloe Vera and Cactus

I have cut and embossed the succulents and popped and popped it up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3D Foam Squares on to a Classic Oval large. This is being layered onto a larger Classic Oval.

 I have adhered it to this to the patterned paper on which I've drawn a border and added paint dots to add to the garden feel of this card.

The layered image has been popped up onto yellow matting and adhered to a pre-cut cardbase.

The sentiment is from Inky Antics stamps set designed by my friend Trudy Sjolander and works perfectly with these dies.  I have used Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko Momento ink in Tuxedo Black. I have also added some postmarks to the Classic Oval.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
