Spring blossom

This card is based on the sweet stop sketch 47:

It's also for:

Cuttlebug be inspired 76: 'ring in spring' - I used the swiss dots embossing folder for the green paper
Stampotique 3: 'spring has sprung'
Crafty catz 24: 'spring'
Pink elephant 58: 'spring'
Another for Rosie-Dee 66: 'think spring'
Our creative corner: 'colour challenge - yellow, pink, green, brown'
Little red wagon 20: 'copics' - the trees image was stamped with memnto rich cocoa and green, yellow and pink colour added with copics, with the addition of some stickles
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 27: 'trees' - I used one of my favourite Inkadinkado stamps
Glenda's random amusing challenge 58: 'spring'
Digi shack: 'Erin go'bragh!' - use green
In style stamps month's challenge: 'yellow and green'
Sophisticat 26: 'new beginnings' - the newness of spring blossom
Pollycraft 36: 'sparkly things' - the stickles blossom
The craft garden March challenge: inspiration from the photo:

It was difficult to get a photo because of the sheen on the piece of Craftwork tutti fruitti that I used across the middle of the card and also the glint on the stickles that I added to the tree blossom, but you can get the general idea - it looks much better irl.
