allotment Box card featuring image from The East Wind

Hello there! this month , subscribers to The East Wind's digital image newsletters got a lovely freebie to play with - Gardening Aurora.
There is also a new challenge up on the blog - embossing- So I decided to combine the two and make this allotment themed pop up box card...

I coloured the image with copics and promarkers, and used kraft card, coredinations cardstock, and madame payrauds paper from papermania to make the pop up box - I also cut earthy hillocks from kraft card and darkened them with vintage photo distress ink, for soil, hand cut some grass and sprouts, and used Birds Cards branches 2 SVG cuts as shoots springing out of the soil too. 
I also stamped butterfly, dragonfly, floral flourish and daisy head indigo blu stamps onto the paper, -the sentiment was added digitally until I can decide what I will actually be using this box card for!
