Lots of lovely spring garden inspiration around right now.  I got reminded about Ike's World by design team member Borqna commenting on one of my cards, and re-discovered it.  This is the freebie offered this time - thanks Ike - I just loved it and had to make something right away.

The dotty paper is a lovely textured two-tone honey colour against the green and hasn't photographed well at all.  It is also double sided so the torn bits are a vintage pink colour.

Great freebies. I love seeds. They don't love me. I don't have a green thumb unless weeds count. Love your card though.

This is really very pretty :-) Thank you for using my image. I can't get seeds to grow here if I plant them - either too hot or the kitties dig them up !!!! Hasn't stopped raining for 5 days here anyway so I think they'd rot :-(

Thank you very much for coming to play at IKEsWORLD CHALLENGES.
