Can't stop cutting out flowers!

Hi all
Since posting my Mouse and Flowers card the other day, I seem to find theneed to keep colouring and cutting out flowers! Although some people would find it frustrating, I seem to find it quite theraputic, and following on the from lovely weather we had yesterday, I felt inspired to do something a bit 'Spring' like. As a result of this, yours truly was up till midnight last night theraputically cutting out flowers!
And here is one of the results of my labours (the other is for a future challenge so I can't show it just yet!). The flowers are all from the Little Claire's floral set and the stamp is a Wild Rose Studios Cherry Cupcake stamp - isn't she cute??
I have edged the card base with some blue and green distress inks to give a hint of colour as I wanted the various coloured images to pop.
For once, I have remembered to jot down the numbers of the Copic markers that I used, so here goes.....
Skin - E50, E51 and R32 for cheeks
Hair - E31, E35 andE37
Flowers - Y08, RV10, RV04, RV02, B12, B23
Dress and leaves - YG03, YG23 and YG11
Well, looking out of the window now it looks like Spring has been and gone as we are back to the grey clouds today. Oh well, at least I still have my card to remind me that itreally was Spring once!
Thanks for looking.
