Spring thank you card

Hi everyone!  I have a happy spring thank you card to share today.  This one is loaded with dies and I even snuck in some light stenciling!  Stenciling is a fun way to dress up your label shapes.  I used my Faded Dot stencil and stenciled in light green ink coming from the left side, fading toward the right.  Then to finish it off, I inked the edges and added stickles for some sparkle.
My flower blossom is a combination of 3 die sets, Jewel Flowers and Flourishes, Foliage Flourish and Rose Creations. The base sunflower is 2 layers of different green shades.  I just love the light blue flourish and leaves, an unexpected pop of color.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here's a close up picture of the blossom and stencil detail.
