Gift from the Garden #JAI350

Good Morning!
Today I’m bring you a card inspired by the Just Add Ink sketch challenge #JAI350
I really wanted to play with my Gift from the Garden stamp set again (139356) (see related posts here.) and I thought this sketch really lent itself to the idea of the pots sitting on the wall.
The pot plants were coloured using my Regal Stampin’ Write markers (131262) the wall was made using Smoky Slate cardstock (131291) dry embossed with the Brick Wall textured embossing folder (138288) then slightly heat embossed with clear embossing powder (109130) to provide some texture, I also used Smokey slate ink (131179) to emphasise the grooves. For the banner / sentiment I used Cajun Craze (121683), Garden Green (108605) and whisper white (106549) card stock, I used my perfect plum marker for the greeting.  The card base uses Perfect Plum cardstock (108615) to complete the card.
