Lucy Cromwell to the Rescue!

Well, the stepper card that I made for my father-in-law for Father's Day has disappeared!  I've had the craft room upside down looking for it and it's vanished, so I've had to make another one.  Just when I thought I'd seen the back of all those male cards as well!  As he was a keen gardener in his younger days, I reached for my Lucy Cromwell Home to Nest A4 Ultimate pack (the same pack as I'd used for the missing card as well), and made a quick decoupage card.
 This pack is so easy to use as everything coordinates so well, all I've added is some kraft card, some green, scalloped, grosgrain ribbon, a twine threaded button and some nail heads.
