“;The tags on the Seeds packet on Ivory paper are little pieces of art that just need some color to fit in my projects. Adding a brighter background in green, I want to the flower design to come in contrast and pop out from the cover, while giving a sense of bright green found in spring grass. This handmade notepad will make a nice gift to someone special.”; –; as Kyriakos says.
