Spring colours at Sir Stampalot

Good morning and Happy Saint David's Day! It is 1st March and time for a new challenge at Sir Stampalot. This Month the theme is Spring is in the air and is a colour theme. You need to use blossom pink, fresh green and yellow on your project.
I created the background using shaving brushes and distress inks in Spun sugar, Wild honey and Crushed olive. I stamped Hero Arts Friend definition in Spun sugar over the top and added some sponging through sequin waste using spun sugar and wild honey. The main panel was cut using a Go Kreate die (XL frames frilly #1). I stamped it with Hero Arts Silhouette Grasses in Versamagic tea leaves and embossed in clear . The paper for the flower was made in the same way, but also sprayed with Iridescent gold glimmer mist.  The flower was made using Shapeabilities flower creations 3 and an x-cut embossing punch. The border punch is from EK success.
Here is a close up of the flower with some added stickles...
...those silhouette grasses...
...and my background. I really enjoyed making this card, and I'll definitely be trying it in different colour ways too.
So, pop over to the Sir stampalot Challenge and get some inspiration from my wonderfully talented teamies. They have produced some real masterpieces this month. We hope you will be able to join in, because there will be another fabulous prize on offer. What is it? Take a look at this lovely lot!
Happy Crafting!
