Sweet Blossom

 
Good afternoon - at last a bit of good weather, and just in time for the late Spring Bank Holiday in the UK - yippee!
 
It has made me come over all spring-like, so I thought I would make a card with one of my new acquisitions, this gorgeous Whimsy stamp called "Sweet Blossom".
 
 
 Stamp: Whimsy by Syvie Zet "Sweet Blossom";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Paper: Prima;
Supplies: flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; ribbon from Hobbycraft; sentiment by Craftwork Cards; doily from my stash;
Tools: large and large classic scalloped circle nestabilities; Marianne D "Branch Forest" die; Martha Stewart "garden trellis" edge punch and "monarch butterfly" punch; Cuttlebug "daisy pattern" embossing folder.
 
 
 Challenges:
