Chickies Greeting Card With Digital Stamp

Spring is right around the corner. The trees are budding out and the grass is growing. We are getting ready to plant our spring garden.  I made this Spring card for Mo's Challenge #71 ~ Spring Colors With Handmade Flower Embellishments

This is how I made the card;
1. I used a pre-made light green cardstock blank card that measures 4" X 5 1/2". 
2. The background paper is from "Spring Blossom Seed Packet Cardstock Pack" by K & Company.
3. I used "Chickies" digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.
4. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pen. I sponged around the sides of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in a light blue color (Tumbled Glass). I then inked the edges of the image with "Tea Dye" Distress Ink.
5. I mounted the image on a piece of dark blue textured cardstock.
6. I made the flowers by using a large Martha Stewart Crysanthemum Punch.  I punched the flower out of Bazzill "Cool Cantaloupe" cardstock and matching gingham patterned paper.  I embellished the flowers with feau pearls.
7. I put the card together with scrapbooking tape and glue dots.

I searched through my collection of rubber stamps for a sentiment to use on the inside of this card.  I decided on "Take Time To Enjoy Life's Little Pleasures."
