I chose the digi set Grow Green for my card today. I tell you what, this is one cu-ute gardening gal, and if I looked like her, why I'd be out there pulling weeds every day, too! Speaking of our garden, we have tomatoes that are ripening, and last night Ed and I enjoyed two wonderful tomato dishes with our supper -- Insalata Caprese & Bruschetta with tomato and basil. Thanks to my wonderful friend, Mary, for the fresh basil! Enough about my wonderful fix in's, let's get on with the card!

I printed out Miss Cute Gardener (MCG for short) and colored her with Copics and colored pencils ala gamsol and then popped her up on a fringed oval of patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety pad. Could that pad of delicious paper BE more perfect for MCG?! After mounting my paper layers on a bright yellow card base, I realized my circle embellishments were a bit too big, so I added another layer of cream cardstock to the base which forced me to stray a bit from Jen's original sketch...good thing Jen is a very understanding lady!

Here is a close up that shows the fun layering, hand cut fringed edge and popped up images...

Ok, now I have some really great news for y'all--Carole Burrage is back in da SFYTT house, and we couldn't be more excited! What's even more exciting than that--I'll be seeing Carole IRL this week at CHA in Chicago! I'll be rooming with my great gal friends, Carole, Leigh O'Brien and Joanne Basile as well...does it get any better than THAT?!

Here's roll call, or as I like to say "Rohl Call", ha! Get it--Amy Rohl, "Rohl Call"...just humor me and give me a chuckle, eh?!

This card is so cute! I love the paper you used and it is perfect. It makes me wish I still had my garden.

Kelly Lunceford said...

So, so cute! I Love those papers! You are right...they couldn't be any more perfect! Great job! I love all of the great details!

Sonja "Sony" Christoph said...

Cuuute Amy!! And you grow your own tomatoes? Look at you Miss Green Thumb!!! I even manage to kill bamboo :(

Leigh OBrien said...

Well you go, gardening girl. The only thing I have growing this year is my little cactus garden. And thankfully they do love this heat...supposed to be 110 heat index today. YIKES! Love your fun card and all of the wonderful details!
BTW, can't wait to see all of "the cool girls" this week too!!!

Hello, fellow great mind! Cosmo must be jumping for joy to see both of us use these papers today... *giggle!* This garden gal is super cute, and I'm jealous of your homegrown tomatoes; the deer and bunnies always get to mine before they ripen! BTW, does your hubby know you're wanting to have another seed planted? We '69ers are getting a little long in the tooth for that kind of stuff, don't you think? Maybe you should consider adoption?


Jodi Collins aka Kharmagirl said...

Rohl call! LOL! That's awesome Amy!
LOVE your card! The papers are perfection with these images!!!

Amber said...

LOL! You are so silly, but I love it, Rohl Call it is!;)

Such a cute card, can I just tell you how much I LOOOVE those papers? I have them but refuse to use them. Refuse! They're sooo cute!
