Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ~ 36 - "In the Jungle"

Good afternoon fellow bloggers. I hope you have all been enjoying your weekend. The weather has been gorgeous and I've spent most of the weekend buying bedding plants, planting them and tidying up the garden - it has been very satisfying.

Yesterday evening I started this card for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge where the theme is "In the Jungle".

I needed to make a Fathers' Day card from my son for his Daddy and thought this would fit the bill.

I didn't have any background paper suitable for a jungle theme so I made my own using flourish stamps and three different green inks.

I'm quite pleased with this card and I hope "Daddy" likes it too.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Sugar Nellie "Rory", Inkadoo flourishes, Elzybells "Family messages"
Copic Ciaos
"Ink it Up" mini ink pads, Memento Rich Cocoa
Die Cuts with a View cardstock
Woodware leaf punch
Nestabilties: Lables and Large long scalloped rectangles.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and looking at this card.

Pleased you've had a productive weekend, the weather is just right for bedding plants, ours are really coming on now, that rain earlier in the week was helpful.
