Veggie Wheelbarrow Birthday

This fun card came about from a sketch challenge I took part in with some fellow docrafters, the theme was food and/or drink.  At first I was really stumped as the sketch had so many layers and elements but once I got my head around that and decided to go with mainly vegetables I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

Seed Packets were stamped with brown ink on a panel of kraft card and just the vegetables highlighted with colouring pencils.  My focal image was going to be the wheelbarrow and I've cut around one of the handles to leave that outside the main topper square to add interest.  Promarkers were used to colour the wheelbarrow, cabbages, carrots, leeks, flower pot and eggs.  It was then quite straight forward to cut a slit in the top of the wheelbarrow and on the flower pot so the veggies could be slotted in and arranged. Used some self adhesive magic mesh for one of the layers so as not to cover up all of those fun birds (chickens maybe?!) on the patterned paper and added three die cut ovals for eggs and some white fencing.
