My mom's neighbors have a garden full of vegetables, and they kindly share their harvest with my mother.

I gave my mom some of my cards as a Christmas gift, to give away, and this was one of them. Naturally, I had her sweet neighbors in mind when I made this one.

I stamped the garlic and artichoke images from Homegrown (Stampin' Up!) repeatedly on the kraft card base, then topped it with a diagonally-cut black strip. Some gold puffy alpha stickers, gold sequins, and more veggies (trimmed out of white cardstock) were added to the black strip for an eclectic kind of card, with a slightly modern feel.

Hope Mom's neighbors enjoy this!

Stamps: Homegrown - Stampin' Up! Paper: white, kraft, True Black - Papertrey Ink Accessories & Tools: gold alphabet puffy stickers - Target Dollar Spot; gold sequins - Pretty Pink Posh
