Everywhere I go these days I find cactus related items so I had to join in the fad and create a Cactus themed card. On this card I printed the Cactus image in a large size, the image has been purchased from KennaSatoDesigns and is available on Etsy. I paper pieced the cactus by cutting out sections of the cactus and creating a fold in the middle of each piece that has stuck to the original image. The sentiment has been done using Bleeding Cowboys font. I have left plenty of white space to make the cactus the focal point and to give the card a CAS look.
