Truly Scrumptious Challenge No 41 (Blue and Green)

I had to make a card for a friend's birthday which I had missed (what's new!!) so I thought I would make another challenge card. This time I've used a stamped image from a set of stamps I got from QVC. These are foam stamps made by La Blanche. They're white foam and the actual stamp seem like white polymer plastic but they give a lovely impression. I used watercolour paints and glossy accents to colour. I used my new beaded oval nestabilities to mount it and used a blue/green bp (part of the challenge extra) from Brenda Pinnock. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers are cherry blossoms and rosebuds from Wild Orchid crafts. I finished it with tiny pearls, a craftwork cards sentiment and stickles glitter.
