Pop It Ups All Seasons Tree & Purple Onion Design Spring Card

I was thinking about Karen Burniston's Spring themed Designer Challenge, and decided I wanted to make another card, which included a pink blossom tree... my parents have the most wonderful big flowering cherry tree in their front garden - the house I grew up in, and I wanted to capture some of that wonderful colour which I so much associate with spring!

I used the Pop It Ups All Seasons Tree die set for the tree, foliage (or clouds!) and little blossoms. I cut the floilage and blossoms from Elizabeth Craft Design's beautiful pink Velvet Adhesive Sheeting - it is gorgeous stuff to use! (The link below, and the shop colour doesn't do justice the lovely soft shade of pink that the sheeting actually is.)
I then added some flower buttons and sequins for more texture.
 The stamps are from Purple Onion Designs - 'I Love______' and letters from the 'Skinny Dip' Alphabet, which I coloured with Copics, cut out and glued down.
And lastly, just a couple of bunting flags were added.

Some of the products used:
