The challenge is 'wood'. I played with this fence for 2 days! Finally got it right...I think. I came to the end of my score tape and had the cardboard roll left over. I though ah-ha... snow fence! So i just measured out strips and tore the ends. Then couched some soft jewellery wire with some fine copper wire I had. The flowers are from Martha Stewart's hydrangea punch as is the fern/branch. The grass is a Cheery Lynn die and the sentiment is a starform sticker. I used a torn paper towel to sponge the clouds because I like the softer more natural look. The background embossing is a spellbinders folder.

your card is darling, the story on how it came together cracked me up because some times ideas come from the stranges places.. and I could almost see your mind ticking when it came together on the fence.. TFS God bless. Joyce

This card is so FUN! Love the snow fence and the way you made it...by couching I'm guessing you mean you snugged it down with wire from the back side. Can only imagine how long this took you to construct, but the time was worth the result! TFS this delightful creation.

terrific card, awesome flowers.... Love your fence btw, it reminds me of fence I remember while growing up. It was everywhere, some were unpainted and others were white and they all seemed to be put together just like your card and many were broken. I read Boss's comment....Snow fence..... Now that makes some sense...Oh to be young again, anyway, love your card and thanks for the memories, TFS
