Spring Bouquet

Hi everyone, My card today is for all the cat lovers  – a colourful spring bouquet delivered by an adorable kitty. I used the inspiration photo from The Shabby Tea Room’s latest challenge for my color choice  – it is so beautiful and bright. The stamp is from Penny Black and as the image is so striking I just layered it on a Sizzix die cut and embellished the card with a few sweet blossoms. The sentiment is stamped on a tiny die cut tag and tied with a little purple bow. Hope the card will bring a lot of happiness to the receiver. Challenges:
