Grow!

Major spring fever here.....snow is melting slowly and the sun was shining today! This is my attempt at a collage-style card. Not sure I'm totally happy with it, but this is where it ended!!
Base card is ecru. The journalling page is from Making Memories. I stamped it with SU!'s Sanded background stamp in Creamy Caramel. I also stamped an Herb Background by Stampington & Co over it in Creamy Caramel. The flowers and dreams verse are by SU!, herb stamp is by Hampton Art. Grow is a Basic Grey Rubon. The linen thread is by SU! and the rake charm is a PIF gift I received and just love. I colored the image with Copic/Studio2 markers. The ribbon is painted with a layer of micropearl mixed with gum arabic and water for some additional shimmer. The *green thumb* down in the corner would be mine!!
