Picking flowers with the Dueling Darlings!

It's April 15th and time for another duel with the Dueling Darling Divas and Dazzlers!  This month our hostesses are Tami  for the Divas (my team) and Melina for the Dazzlers. They choice the theme "I picked a flower for you".  Tami sent this fabulous kit so full of spring beauty including the following items:

Stamps:  Image: Great Impressions Stamps - Lizzy Dressed; Sentiment: Mary Engelbreit

Papers:  My Mind's Eye - My Girl, Bazzil - border die cuts, Pink Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossed     panel, Green Sizzix Dots-n-Flowers embossed panel

Embellishments:  Green ribbon by Offray, blue, white and flower patterned ribbon, paper flowers, pink flower brads, blue glitter brads, clear rhinestones, pink heart rhinestone, variety of  buttons and die cuts.

Here's my card:
I colored this sweet Lizzy image with Copic markers and mounted her on the cards with dimensionals.  Embossed a panel of sky blue cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder from "Once Upon a Time" set.  The flower panel is from the My Mind's Eye "My Girl" papers.  The butterfly was fussy cut from on of the My Mind's Eye papers mounted on dimensionals to flit on the paper flowers embellishment, leaving behind a trail of blue glitter brads.  We were challenged to use the green ribbon somewhere on our card so I wove it in one of the pink Bazzil die cuts.  Hope this card inspires you with the joy and new life of spring!
