Craft Us Crazy challenge #3 - Nature!!

Hiya, As you read this i will be getting ready to head to Glasgow SECC for the Hobbycraft Show! I have a list of things i am looking for and will have the whole day to walk around without anyone rushing me. I cant think of a better way to spend a day!

Anyway onto the important stuff..its a new challenge over at Craft Us Crazy today!!  Thanks for everyone that made a "Winter" project.
This time the theme this time is..............Nature!!  With it coming into Spring there are lots of ways to interpret this theme.

This challenge is sponsored by CoCoDingo!!

The prize is 4 Digital images of your choice!

Also for the month of March we are also being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

The prize for this month is $10 Gift Certificate. The top 3 from both challenges this month will be put into a draw and the person who is picked will win this prize! 

Here is my Nature project.......Its a little file card to hold packets of seeds. 

I have used a template that came with a craft magazine (Crafts Beautiful i think) a long time ago. I went through a period of pulling out all those free templates and putting them into a folder and have hardly looked at them since! Now i just keep the whole magazines which are taking up so much space!
Once i had put the file card together i covered it with Wild Rose Studio papers which i had inked with pink. The image is Lilyboo designs, Bunches in the flowers. I have coloured this with promarkers. I did the sentiment on the computer and printed off. I added the chain and garden charms to the sentiment make it look like a bag charm. Its round the ribbon handle which you cant see in the photo, Sorry! The flowers are WOC and all the swirls and leaves are from my Cricut Storybook Cartridge. I added the gems to finish off. 
Heres the inside with packets of seeds in the little pockets. 

I am entering this file card into the following challenges ; - Spring Garden Scene

Thanks for popping by and hope you find time to make a nature themed project for our latest challenge at Craft Us Crazy!
