Between Neighbors

I get hit by the genius stick so seldom in life that I have to share when I do. When I got my sneak peek of the summer mini catalog I instantly fell in love with one of the sets - Bouquet Bunch. I don't know that anyone else loved this set as much as I did. Isn't it a crazy set to love so much? I saw this set and almost immediately pictured this card in my mind. Isn't it just amazing? I really impressed myself! The card was very tedious with a lot of cutting and steps. I had originally planned for this to be a card for one of my classes, but it took me over two hours to get this card finished. So for now, I'll just have to treasure it on my own! The sky is sponged using the scallop circle punch as a mask for clouds. The fence is actually made from the medium jewelry tag punch - 24 of them! It is two punches tall with the ribbon strategically placed to cover where the top of one meets the bottom of the other. Each medium jewelry tag punch is sponged with river rock around all of the edges. The leaves were colored with garden green and old olive markers to look more realistic. They were cut out around the outer leaves and layered with dimensionals to give the appearance of some of the leaves spilling out over the fence.

this is such a creative card-it does look like the leaves are coming over the fence
