Sending Sunshine Card

I have had some time to play in recent days... 
It feels so good to be back in my creative room once again! 

This card is from an old sketch that I really liked and wanted to try. I pulled out an old stamp set - Card Word Puzzle - and combined it with a recently retired stamp set - Springtime Wishes - to create the flowers and leaves for this card. I coloured those images using ShinHan markers. The markers on the leaves didn't blend very well and left a kind of mottled look but I rather like it as it has a kind of water coloured effect. The Emerald green stems are cut from Flower Market, as is the sentiment. Once again, it is very hard to see the shimmer on the flowers but it is there - really!
