Handmade "Hello Spring!" Greeting Card

Spring is officially here and so to celebrate I have created this "Hello Spring!" greeting card.

I used the fabulous My Prima Planner Princess Coloring Dividers 2 and tried a new technique with my WOW! embossing powders - colouring in.

I used the WOW! embossing pen on areas of the picture and then heat embossed each area individually.  The centres of the flowers are a blend of Daytona Sands and Champers. I also used the pen to dot a few colour sprinkles around the hair.
I used Neutral Sparkle on the Eyelids to look like glittery eye shadow.

I used the WOW! French Music Stamp and Atlantic Seaspray powder to emboss the background.

I then heat embossed the wooden sentiment from Heidi Swapp Wanderlust pack and embossed the dress in my favourite shade: Atlantic Seaspray - a pale aqua pearl base with gold marbling:
The finished piece:
