Welcome to Spring

Hello there,
well hopefully Spring is only around the corner now! After all the snow and rain it's been great to have a few sunny days.

This is my card for the April Fairy and Unicorn Challenge, this month it's anything goes with the option of Spring is in the air. This month we're sponsored by the amazing IkesArt, and I've chosen the Seeds image which you can buy here.

What I used

White 8x8 card blank.
Green Tonic Craft Perfect card stock.
Tonic Leaves embossing folder brushed with Memento New Sprout ink.
IkesArt Seeds images coloured as follows:
Promarkers: Black, Leaf and Grass.
Spectrum Noirs: LY1, GB6 and TB3.
The sentiment came free with a magazine and is stamped using Memento Cottage Ivy with a border stamped using a Card-io leaf stamp using the New Sprout ink.
I finished it off with a green ribbon bow from my stash.

I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you can - all are greatly received!
