Willow with Flower Basket

Here is another spring card. This one using Willow With Flower Basket from Whiff of Joy.  I started with a tranquil blue card base.  I added a piece of light gray card stock just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a piece of tranquil blue card stock and punched one side using an eyelet lace border punch. I added a piece of light gray card stock that I embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots).  I added a green dotted ribbon down the center.  I used crayola and prisma colored pencils to color the image and then cut it out in an oval.  I backed the image in green card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors.  I added 3 grayish green roses to the bottom of the image. I punched mini branches out of each color and added them on either sides of the roses going up the image.  I added 5 green pearls to the upper side of the card.
