Jane's Doodles {All Things Grow With Love}

Happy Friday! Today, I have a Jane's Doodles card to share with you. It uses two of the newest sets, Pretty Peonies and Big Sentiments with the ark from Noah's Ark as a planter.

I stamped the peonies with three shades of yellow distress ink and fussy cut them. I layered them around the base of the ark and tied Charcoal baker's twine around it. In the close-up photos, you can see that I scored an X on the black card base to create the look of a wood frame. Then I used a paint dabber to ink up the edges of the kraft panel.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy your day. :)
