Spring Colours

I think my title should really be 'Spring COLOUR' as I seem to be in a bit of a 'tone on tone' rut at the moment.  This is my card for this weeks Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Spring Colours:

It turned out rather green didn't it!  The image is from Whoopsi Daisy - sheet 137, coloured with my usual combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  I have just ordered four more sets of FlexMarkers, I love the brush tips and find them so much easier to blend with than other alcohol markers.  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, decorated to complement the front:


Image:  Whoopsi Daisy - sheet 137
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs - Simply Dots and Spring Delights
Card Stock:  Joanna Sheen (along time ago)
Tools:  Spellbinders - Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles, Marianne CreaTables - LR0131,
FrisKars border punch, Woodware - corner punch
Embellishments:  button, ribbon and twine from stash
Sentiment:  computer generated

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge 91 - Make it Girlie
