One foxglove photograph, four cards

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be...
A very warm welcome to new follower Sallysbitz2
Methinks I will just skip over the changeable weather today except to say that I can at least function more comfortably now the intense heat has gone for the time being :o)
My cards for today all use the same image, but in different ways.





The first two are A5 and the other two are DL, a size that I have not made for several years, but of course the flower spike lends itself very well to this shape of card.
I took the photograph at Elvaston Castle a couple of weeks ago. 
I feathered it in PSP and printed it onto my favourite Papermania textured card. I love the canvas effect that it creates. For the first two I made them into toppers, and then straight onto the card for the other two.
The words are my own, created in Word using Papyrus font for the top two and Vinerhand font for the others. The leaf vine is a Memory Box die cut.
