Jade's Sparkling Butterflies- All Things Bright and Beautiful

Good morning everyone. Today I'm sharing my DT card for Jade's Sparkling Butterflies Challenge Blog. This is our new name for the blog formerly known as 2 Crafty Girls. Please take a look at the revamped blog, the DT are incredibly talented and all the cards are beautiful.

Our theme for the next fortnight is All Things Bright and Beautiful. Our sponsors for this challenge are:

I chose this fabulous image from Robyn's Fetish, called a Little Birdie Told Me. The digi stamp is available to buy here.

I coloured the digi using Spectrum Noir markers:
Bird TB1 TB3 IG1 IG2 GB1 GB4
Flowers CT3 CT4 CR2 CR3 CR4
Tree Stump GB8 GB10

The papers and ribbon I used are from Docrafts Folk Floral range. I rarely use yellow but love it combined with the pink here. The frame has been cut using a Die'sire die and the flowers using First Edition flower dies. The buttons and gems are from my stash. I don't often do bright but I do like this spring like card.

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