Spring blossoms Shannon

This week the challenge over at Come And Get It Challenges is Spring/Easter.  
I chose spring.  I wanted to make a card that typified spring without actually saying it out loud, so I concentrated on the flowers and spring colours. 

This beautiful image from our sponsor Polkadoodles  is coloured with Reno pens, masked, then the background and edges softly sponged with ink.  I used this gorgeous backing paper for the background, but also fussy cut some of the apple blossoms and one rose to raise with 3D foam - she had shells, so I covered them with flowers (see how versatile this image is?).   A stamped sentiment, soft bow and mother of pearl sequins to finish.  She looks like she's dancing barefoot through the blossoms.

When spring comes, enjoy every moment!  It makes me feel like dancing...

Come and join us in this fun challenge.
