A card and gift for my Mum

The challenge over at Allsorts this week is to make a card/gift for Mum.
My Mum loves gardening so I used 
 Penny Black image "Gossamer" over a Hero Arts background stamp "Silhouette grass"
I have decoupaged the flowers.

Inside I have made 4 wallets from envelopes, 3 of which contain a packet of seeds each (remove from normal seed packets & put into money envelopes to match card) & one wallet left empty so I can add a little sentiment card, telling her how much she means to me!
xXx
xXx
I started off with the intention of the card opening consertina style; but didn't like all the ribbons on the seed packets next to the ribbon tie at the side of the card, so I turned the wallets so that the opening were at the top & now the side tie is for decoration only!
xXx
Thanks for looking

Hi Fleur

I love your gorgeous creation.

What a fantastic idea to put seeds in there - you have given me an idea for a gardening pal's birthday later in the year!! Thank you for the inspiration.

Thank you also for playing along with Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx
