Spring Chrysanthemum -

"Spring is in the air" - do you believe it?  Wishful thinking!!  This card is based on the Clean and Simple Stamping's FTL128 sketch pictured below and the colors are from the Play Date Cafe Challenge (PDCC69).
Took my time coloring the Chrysanthemum from A Muse with my Copic markers for the Stamp It! Techniques Week: The Stamping with Markers Challenge.  The Less is More blog's third week challenge is the theme - spring.

I kinda dig how the twine looks like it popped up and tied itself around the flower - Patterned paper is from Basic Grey; glitter from Martha Stewart; Charcoal Baker's Twine from The Twinery; sentiment from A Muse
