Carrot Collector

Today is challenge day with my friends on CCEE Stampers and here hostess Liz's challenge.

According to research, it is More Herbs, Less Salt Day!! Herbs and plants add so much to our lives, so in honor of this unusual day, make a card with an herb or plant on it. I know we have lots of followers who love gardening, so any of these images would work great. You might even want to add colors that are named after herbs and plants: sage, thyme, lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, celery, olive, or cocoa, as well as all those you can think of. Have fun with it.

I couldn't find anything with a herb theme so I went with vegetables that go well with herbs. I started with 2 pieces of designer paper 6 x 10 , joining them with double sided tape so that it had the same image on both sides. I then used the Rectangle Pull Card , Basket Barrel with pop up and carrots from Lucky the Rabbit designed by Karen Burniston  for Elizabeth Craft Designs . The sentiment is designed by Susan's Garden Club. The girl on the front is from Penny Black designed by Mo Manning, carrot collector.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
