It's been a while since I've participated in the weekly challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, and it's high time I fixed that. And this week's Mojo Monday sketch looked like a lot of fun, so why not combine them both? So that's just what I did...
The Shabby Tea Room's "Vegetable Garden" inspiration photo is a wonderful vintage image, and the challenge was to feature fruits or vegetables, along with text, on our project. Since oranges and pears went together with my sentiments better than veggies, I chose to use those in the digital collage. And as you can see, I did make a few "tweaks" to my final design from the Mojo Monday sketch for this week - the card changed to square, the single banner turned into two on each side, and I moved the floral cluster just a bit...
Here are a couple close-ups of the floral cluster...
And a detail shot of the pearl and crystal stick pin that holds the little sentiment tag...
