Spreading a Little Springtime Cheer

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all beginning to feel the signs of Spring the way that I have been the last couple of days. (Well, at least on my side of the hemisphere)... =)
I thought I would share a little project that I made using "Rachel Little Angel" from Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection. Elisabeth definitely named this little doll appropriately.
She truly is an angel. Just too cute!
I created a seed packet! I have put some wild flower seeds inside, and thought that it would make a great little gift packet to give away for the welcoming of Spring.

When I began coloring little Rachel, I started out using Copics, mostly for hair and skin. I then decided to switch things up a little bit and use my Stampin' Up water color pencils. So I do have a bit of a mixed media look to my image here. Each of the little punched flowers that I used were also colored using the water color pencils.
I kept the back of the seed packet quite simple really, only adding a small circle to use as the closure.
This image is also an Elisabeth Bell design, but is licensed to Belles 'n Whistles. I didn't seal this packet for the picture, but it has double sided tape there, so that once it's closed, I wouldn't attempt to open it again until I was ready to use the seeds.
Are you all getting ready for the Digi Bells blog hop that is coming up at the end of this week?
Beginning on Friday, at 9:00 AM (Arizona Time)   This months newest addition to Elisabeth's Digital Collection, is sure to be a surprise....  Why not join us for some fun chances to win, as well as getting some inspiration from the Digi Bells Fabulous DT.

Thanks for stopping by today, if any of you decide to create a seed packet, I'd love to take a peek. =)

I am entering this into these challenges:

Papertake Weekly - "One for the Girls"
2 Sisters Challenge - "Spring Colors"
