Garden arch for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

This card uses lots of different dies from the Mixed Media and Entwined Heart collections by Leonie Pujol. I started by cutting the Big Heart base from pearlescent grey card and snipping the point off. This gave me my 'metal' garden arch.

Next I cut 'Entwining Branches' out of some green patterned card and glued parts of it around each side of the arch.

For my fencing I used a couple of the dies in the 'Mosaic' set, cut from brown card

 and entwined parts of 'Big Heart - Floral Cascade' through

 To make my trees I used 'Mosaic' for the trunks, and one of the leaves from 'Floral Bursts' for the foliage, which I sanded lightly to bring out the embossed detail.

For the background I painted Teal, Sea Green and Slate Spectrum Aqua Markers onto wet watercolour card and left it to dry before attaching to an A5 landscape card.

Then I just attached all the die-cuts to the card base and added a 'Message Ribbon' stamped sentiment.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
