Spring Fever!

Honestly, this feels like cheating. If you can't tell, I used the Spring Fever Simply Scrapping Kit from the Occasions Mini to create this card. Actually, I really used leftovers from the Simply Scrapping Kit. I attended a workshop last weekend, and we made about 8 cards and a box, and there is so much leftover that I cannot bear to not do something with it.
The colours absolutely scream SPRING with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzaz. The Designer Paper is beautiful - I like them with small prints, as I am not into scrap booking so much (yet), so the smaller prints work well for me on cards and tags.
 I used the heart punch to make the petals on the flower - just punch out 8 and fold in half. Stick one side down with Snail and you are done. Everything co-ordinates, it all works well together, and the finished product looks so great (like you spent hours creating it all).
All the images on the inside of the card are heard correct, they are stickers! I added some more pearls for a touch of luxe, a Dimensional for pop, and then I was done. I still feel like I cheated :)

I used the layout from PPA 129 Sketch Challenge for added inspiration too.
