...Farm Fresh Spring Clean-Up


It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have...A Spring Cleaning Challenge!  We were to use something that we were either going to throw away, or something that we had forgotten about having in general. I used the image and sentiment from Marina Neira's set called "Sweet Message", stamped the image in Black Ink, then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. I created the sentiment panel by cutting a fabric tag from a new pair of jeans that I bought for my oldest son.  I cut out the circle using Spellbinders' Circle Nestie Dies and my Big Shot, then stamped the sentiment on the center...I love the way it turned out!  I paired the colors in the image with a piece of patterned paper from the Report Card paper pad by October Afternoon, then added some stitching, punched flowers, and brads to complete the card.

Now let's see what the Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you again tomorrow with a card for another C4C Challenge. Until then...
