They grow so fast ...

I'm having a lovely crafty day today as I have the house to myself for a change. I love this digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil and when I found some bits and bobs of papers from a Chatterbox kit in my stash I thought the pastel blue and green would be great with him.

I've watecoloured the image and cut it out before layering it on one of the plain papers from the chatterbox kit.  The other papers have all been distressed with my craft knife and some random brown ink. I've added some pastel blue satin ribbon and some string which is coloured with shabby shutters distress ink. The sentiment is a sticker from the same kit again distressed with brown ink. To finish the card off, I added some 'altered' runner bean seeds. They were waiting to be planted so I pinched a few and dipped them in green EP and then dipped one in gold EP.
This card is for the following challenges:
DP2: pastels
Allsorts: Alter or recycle something
Lots to do: vintage
Thanks for looking
Have a happy Easter
