Think Spring

I'm sure those of you who have been having a cold, icy or snowy winter like we've been having are more then ready for Spring,  I know I am.  I signed up on another group I belong to for a "Think Spring" card challenge and this is the card I created for my partner. 

Stamp Set:  Upsy Daisy, Sanded Background
Card Stock: Tangering Tango, So Saffron, Old Olive, Whisper White and Haiku Designer (to bad it's retiring soon as it's so refreshing).
Ink: Tangering Tango and Basic Black
Other: Fire Rhinestone Brad, Designer Flower Brad,  Notched Corner Punch (retired), Scallop Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Foam Mounting Tape and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

I stamped the flowers once with the Tangerine Tango ink and then stamped again (without reinking) slightly above where I first stamped ( I just love the shadow look this makes) and then highlighted the darker flowers with the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
