Spring Greens!

I made this card for my friend, Vic, to give her Mum for Mother's Day.
The lovely image is one of Ruth's digi stamps from A Passion For Stamps.  I've coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  I really love some of the very pale, subtle colours of Flexmarker, they're so soft and pretty.
The papers are Papermania Me To You Spring Chic which are so pretty and full of spring colours.
The sentiment stamp is a random, unbranded one from my stash, it's been lurking for a few years and I can't remember where it came from.
I've added faux stitching to the topper and some of the layers by pricking holes with my pokey tool and joining them up with green, metalic Sakura pen.
Ribbon, bow, gems, done!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Graphicat Sketches - #3 - sketch
Crafting For All Seasons - #22 - use green and yellow
Top Tip Tuseday - #71 - stitches real or faux
