A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Springtime

We have a new challenge for you at A Gem of a Challenge, with the seasonal theme of "Springtime".  I've used one of Janet's cute new digis, called Little Millie with Daffodils., which I coloured with Promarkers.
 I used a Craftwork Cards shaped blank, and layered up with Dovecraft, Back to Basic IV papers, along with green card for the floral mat, done with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set.  The sentiment was stamped with a stamp from a Hobby Craft set and mounted onto more green card.
To embellish, I added some printed grosgrain ribbon with a matching button topped bow, and a daisy made with a Spellbinders die.  I used yellow glitter flock for the flower's centre and die cut the leaves using dies from the same set as the bloom.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Suzy Bee's - #120 - Spring
Brown Sugar - #188 - Cute and Cuddly
4 Crafty Chicks - #288 - Easter
Aud Sentiments - #150 - Easter or Spring Sentiment
Craft Rocket - #10 - Feathers and/or Fur
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Think Spring
Crafty Sentiments - Spring
