Judge not by the harvest but by the seeds planted....

ODBD Stamps: Garden Mini, I Dig You, designed by Grace Nywening
Hi my friends!  I hope  you are all well today!

I have a quick card to share that is also totally FLAT and easy to mail!!! :)

This is for this week's ODBDSLC165, which is a sketch, and for the Color Challenge on SCS this week.

My stamps are ODBD I Dig You, Garden Mini, and Gingham Backgroud. I also used the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die and the Elegant Oval die. The bg die is SB Resplendent Rectangles. The designer paper is Paper Studio. Images are stamped with Memento and colored with copics.

This was really a quick easy card, which I know a lot of us need to move to.... not every card can take hours! lol!  

I am enjoying this month's garden themed release at ODBD and I hope you are inspired by them as well!  Here are the ODBD products used:
FANCY FOLIAGE DIES
GINGHAM BACKGROUNDGARDEN MINI SET I DIG YOU!  
ELEGANT OVAL DIES 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
  C is for Challenge -  Fresh & Bright   One Stitch At A Time -  In the summer Penny Black and More In the Garden Quirky Crafts - Great Picnic / BBQ The Craft Garden -  Inspiration Photo* Challenges and candies - No.15 - Colours, Smells and Taster of Summer

Hi Grace~

Beautiful card! I do not garden or can vegetables and fruits, but I just love the fresh summer colors and theme you have used here. A flat card by you? Impossible! But then again all things are possible...
