Spring is in the Air - Card Challenge

I'm sad that I didn't get this card done in time to post it at the Card Positioning System challenge since I used this week's sketch for inspiration to create a card for my Aunt, however I am posting it at JUGS (Just us Girls) for the color challenge to use light brown, light blue, light green and yellow.  I just loved the patterned paper from SEI's "Jocelyn" paper pack and it fit very nicely with the color challenge.  I also designed this card to fit in with this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge to create a spring card using stamps and at least one Cricut cut. 


The CPS card sketch was very simple, so I wanted to add a little something to it and the Prima flower was just the ticket.  I used my Accent Esstentials cart to cut the two layered flowers I adhered to the Prima flower to minic those on the patterned paper.  I distressed the edges of the flower with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye Distress Ink to make them stand out against the patterned paper.  I cut the sentiment label from the Fabulous Finds cart.  I then used a Hero Arts stamp to stamp two leaves onto yellow cardstock and cut them out.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, as well as the cardstock and ribbon. The two pearls are from Hero Arts. Ink for the leaves and sentiment are also from PTI.
