Lily Pad Challenge.

 Lily Pad Cards are running their first digital die cut challenge! Unfortunately I don't have a digital die cutter but have still been able to play along using good old scissors!! I was inspired by Pia's sample project and decided to make a seed packet gift holder.

This is the front of the holder, I have cut out a watering can and the trowel and fork in patterned paper and then distressed.  I then added a small stamped flower to the watering can. The main image is a Hero Arts stamp that I have layered onto some text paper and distressed again.  The green shaped panel is a bit of recycling as it was the backing panel to a lace stamp that I have just got.






































This is the inside of the holder showing the pocket for the seeds.

Back to work today after two weeks holiday and it has come really hard, it was a really busy day in the office so I am off to relax now with a cup of tea.
Supplies; Hero Arts stamps H5261Flourish Trio. F5407 Lets Garden. Patterned paper. Tea Dye distress ink. Twine, ribbon and gems.
