I started with Tim Holtz's Seasonal Paper Stash. I used a strip from the 6x6 sized print of vintage seed packets. I love this print as it reminds me of my Nanny and Grampy's garden that they had when I was young, and going with Grampy to pick out seeds.
I chose cardstock, ribbon and ink to coordinate with the print. After stamping and embossing with my Cuttlebug, I added some ink with a Ranger Inksentials tool to bring out the embossed pattern on the background, and around the edges of all of the pieces with an artist sponge. It seems that these days I can't help but ink everything! I decided not to add a sentiment because its always nice to have a pretty notecard on hand as you never know when you will need one.
I love how this card turned out! Perhaps spring isn't as far away as I thought. :)
