Let it be Spring at Craft a Scene

Good afternoon, how's your Sunday going? I'm a very lucky girlie today as my lovely son has given me a day off from housey stuff and done all the jobs that need doing and even cooked a scrummy Sunday lunch. Now can I push my luck and see if I get get him to do some gardening too lol?? Spring has definitely arrived in my garden, lots of Spring flowers and all the plants are getting their new leaves and talking of Spring, this is the last week of our 'Let is be Spring' challenge at Craft a Scene and for my DT project I've made this card.

The stamps are all from Stamp It Australia, I adore these stamps but haven't inked them up for ages. I stamped the scene on Cotman hotpressed water colour card using black archival ink and then painted the scene with distress inks, adding some more depth here and there with distress markers.

The background was also made using distress inks and a Cherry Blossom stamp from Sheena Douglass. I've used black card for matting and layering and then added some  blossom die cuts (this was where my idea for this card started as I have a lovely plum tree outside my craft room window, it always come into blossom really early  and is sooo pretty). I've also added a black bow and a die cut butterfly.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Creative Romance: spring flowers
Allsorts: use those dies
Crafting for all seasons: No designer paper
Left of Centre: anything goes anniversary challenge
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes
Paper Shelter: spring
