Another packet of seeds...

I like to make/give a little something to all of Thomas' prechool ladies at the end of the year. I decided this time to make some decorated seed packets after I made one for my mum for her birthday. I have sort of cheated and used patterned cardstock from MME. It's quite thin but works well for these packet holders. I have 9 to make and this is the first one. I have used a piece of cardstock 3.5" x 12" and scored at 1" and then popped the seeds in and folded the top down (didn't really need to score it as the card is thin). I have used DST on the back of the seed packet at the bottom to secure it to the holder and also on the back of the 1" lip at the base. This keeps the seed packet nicely in place. I have used 2 Pink Gem stamps to decorate the outside of the holder and a computer generated sentiment for the inside.

I would like to enter my seed packet/card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge 5, Ribbon and Buttons (ribbon in Chloe's hair and button on ticket sentiment)

Supplies:
Cardstock - Penny Lane stack by MME
Image - Chloe in Garden from Pink Gem Designs coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Thank you ticket from Pink Gem Designs
Button - from stash
Adhesive pearls - Basic Grey (used for flower centres)
Tools - scissors for distressing
