Penny Black and More - April Challenge

Hello and thanks for visiting! Hope you're having a great weekend so far, and that April started off good for you!
 I have a new card to share today for our April Challenge at Penny Black and More. A pretty simple challenge this month, so everyone can play along...

Blossoms and Blooms.

As always, you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp, any stamp company would work, just no digistamps please.We have again several fabulous sponsors with lots of prizes to give away.

I used a new (to me) stamp from Penny Black From Me to You. I just loved this one when I first saw it, and finally was able to narrow down my order and ordered a few stamps. I did have to wait what seemed like an eternity to get it, because of a post office mess-up, but the wait was well worth it.

The color combo was inspired by a pin on my color combo pin board on Pinterest. Image has been colored using copic markers. I kept the card pretty clean and simple. Just added a flourish diecut (Whimsy Stamps), the sentiment and some twine. Of course there is some glitter too. The sentiment is from Whimsy's new clear photopolymer stamp set "simple sentiments". The "grass" was done using a Martha Stewart punch.

I am playing in a few other challenges too:
