Springtime - Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 192

Spring is so close yet so far.  Only 3 more calendar weeks, and I can't wait!  It's been snowing the last couple of days - not enough to accumulate, but enough to make for gray days.  This card brought me a little closer to spring today.  It is based on the Stamping 411 sketch challenge here

Stamp: Eastern Blossoms
Inks: Black Stazon, Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Regal Rose, Rose Red, Real Red), Markers (Daffodil Yellow, Chocolate Chip, basic black), Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Tempting Turquoise, Ice Cream Parlor Designer Paper, Whisper White
Accessories: Modern Label Punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon folded in half, stitched and pulled into a floret, Flower Designer Brad, Stampin Dimensional

The Blossoms were colored with watercolor crayons and an Aqua painter.  On the center I used Daffodil Delight marker, and coloured the branch with a chocolate chip marker.
For the sentiment, I highlighted the word "Springtime"only with a black marker.
