A Breath of Spring

It's nearly spring, yay!  I love to see the crocuses in my garden poking their heads up.  As a sufferer of SAD, spring means more daylight and a reduction in my meds til October when the clocks change again.  Spring flowers are such a cheerful reminder of longer days just around the corner.
This lovely image is from A Passion for Stamps, designed by the talented Ruth.  I've coloured it with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added little drops of Anita's 3D gloss to look like dew.
The plain papers are mainly Papermania and the patterned paper is Papermania Forever Friends Spring Time pack.  The embossing folder I've used is Divine Swirls by Cuttlebug.
I'm not sure where the sentiment stamp is from, it's been in my stash for years!
I've used Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade around the edges of the scalloped blank and used it it stamp the sentiment.
Some gems and a bow embellished with a Papermania brad finish it off.
