More Spring Things for Penny Black and More

Time for a little more spring inspiration for the Penny Black and More challenge reminder today! Our theme is "Spring" so come join us and share your spring creations for a chance to win one of the wonderful prizes. Remember you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp, any make goes, just no digis.
I heat embossed the image (What a Spring by Penny Black) on Bristol Vellum card stock and then watercolored using Zig Clean Color. The edges were inked using Stampin Up Bashful Blue ink (sadly I think it's retired), and I sewed the edges using my Janome sewing machine. Sentiment is also an old one from Penny Black. I used bashful blue gingham ribbon (also from SU- retired) as an embellishment.
Some Wink of Stella was applied to the tulips and butterflies and I adhered it to a green card base. Designer paper is from my stash.
