Spring Buds

This is my sample for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today, celebrating "Buds". They are coming up, and for me it is the best time of the year watching as they peek above the soil.
I wanted a bit of texture behind my flowers, and I remembered I had this frame set, also from Altenew. There are 3 different rectangle frames to pick from, and I picked the largest and medium frames to stamp and heat emboss with white embossing powder. I trimmed off the edge of the larger frame, as I did not want the frame to cover the entire front of my card, then attached to my card base.
Moving on to the flowers I stamped using corresponding ink colours from Ranger's Archival inks, then coloured with Copic Markers, as listed below. I die cut the flowers and attached to my card using foam squares.
Using my Misti I then stamped my sentiment using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink, and added a few Nuvo Jewel Drops. 
Moving to the inside, I die cut a panel using Penny Black's Elegant Stitching and placed it inside my Misti to stamp this beautiful sentiment. I know who I am sending this card to, and I know she will love it, especially this sentiment. I finished by adding a simple leaf.
