Happy Spring- In Pastels

I think about spring and can't resist creating something in a splash of colors. Colors are, sort of, my weakness. It is hard for me to create something in monochrome, may be my culture has some influence there.

Anyway, I created this card based on a style I saw on here. For spring theme, I collected all the stamps I had of various branches, small flowers and small butterflies and selected a few of relevant sizes. I masked the center of the card with a circle paper and stamped selected branches in pastel colors. I did not bother to mask stamped ones while adding another image besides it. After removing the mask, I added small flowers, butterflies and the sentiment. I applied a blue Distress ink around the edges to pull all the images together. Adding stitched detail, a small die cut flourish, a flower and bright twines completed this simple card.
