Spring is in the Air!

It would seem that 'Spring is in the air' in blogland...with lots more 'Spring' themed challenges this week...so I've made this card using fresh 'Spring' colours for the following challenges: Allsorts; Crazy4Challenges; and Cuttlebug Challenges. I followed the sketch from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...flipping it to suit the way my image (from the 'Wonderful' set) is facing. The papers are by BasicGrey, from the 'Romani' (floral) and 'Two Scoops' (plain green) collections. I embossed the green paper using my Cuttlebug 'Moroccan Screen' folder, sanding to reveal the white core, before distressing all of the edges of the papers, and adding some faux stitching. The flowers & ribbon are from Poppicrafts, and the pink pearls were a gift from my Secret Santa last Christmas.
