YPP April ATC swap *Garden Dreams*

April ATC swap at Theme: Garden Dreams.
Introducing my ATC I created for this swap. I was so excited to be able to create this card to share with others. This is one of my favorite pieces of work. For the carrots I have pieces of orange card stock measuring approximately 1/4"x8 1/2" and rolled each of them. Before rolling them I distressed the edges so when they were rolled up, it would be more dimentional. I created this to look like the carrots are sitting in a flower trough or window seal and of course who can garden without a shovel or rake and so you will see those in the background for embellishements, Then I ran the base of the card through the cuttlebug for some embossed look. The sentiment that I add stated "The Best Fertilizer is The Gardeners Shadow!" Before sending this off to the host, I had also attached a package of carrot seeds to each card for the ladies I will be swapping with. Hope you ladies enjoy this creation of my garden dream ATC.
