Don't be such a square!
As you can see, I have had quite a bit of my crafty stash out for this card, including my grand nesties, to make the card base, my Britannia dies to make the flowers and leaves, my Bearly Mine digital papers (Spring Flight and Plain and Simple) and some lovely sparkly glitter.
I thought that the bearly mine Spring Flight papers went really well with this image and, as you can see, I have tried to colour my leaves to replicate those in the paper. I also used the papers to make my die cut flowers....as there is a colour gradient in the paper you can choose a different shade to get a bit of contrast.
I have to say that this card took a bit of time to make, but I think the end result was worth the effort, and now I can enter it in to lots of lovely challenges:
