i matt and layered the 8x8 card base, added a doilie, and the coloured ,mated image.

next i cut a picket fence and ran it through the cuttlebug with a crafters companion textured folder to get the wood grain.

to complet the card i had cut loads of tiny leaves and made a wreath , garland and corner piece, i added flower stamens to look like berries.
