Happy Easter BugABoo GBTomato Card

Created this Easter card with a Spring Garden Tomato theme. 

Used BugABoo digi, Garden Bunny Tomato. Colored the digi using Crayola crayon & pencil colors. Cut out the digi with a Spellbinder hexagon die. Used a sketch which you can see below.

With MISTI tool I used alpha Hero Arts for my unexpected thing which is to stamp 'tom' 'ato' & vine on small hexagons. 

Stamped HA vine & sentiment. Used a veggie embossing folder and embossed a green layer & a white piece of cardstock. Colored the tomatoes on the white cardstock with Crayola pencil colors, fussy cut out with scissors & used Tim Holtz Distress ink on edges.

Photographed in my backyard with tomato plants. Hubby is building a new greenhouse just for the tomato plants next to the other greenhouse we have other vegs in.
