Set of 4 Gardening Note Cards for Clean & Simple #127 Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday!!!

I have a special treat today..........
A note card assortment that just turned out so pretty!

I have so many friends that garden, so when I saw this Garden Tools Bouquet image at Squigglefly this past Saturday, I knew I had to make a bunch of cards using it.  Marla Shega is the artist behind this beautiful image.  Wait until you see another one of her images for the card coming up tomorrow!

Here is a set of 4 cards!

I used the same Copic colors for the tools but changed up the twine/straw that was around them and the borders.  Then I matched it to the card stock base.

Giving you a peek at the inside.  Click to enlarge!

I really like these muted colors and the torn paper.

If you click to enlarge, you will see that the first card has a deep blue strip and then second one is brown.

Isn't that image just beautiful???  It seriously only took me about a half hour to color all 4 images and then about 40 minutes to assemble all 4 cards.  Of course, it was made a bit easier by using the Clean & Simple #127 Sketch Challenge.  This will be a sketch that I use often.  Absolutely love it!
