I used Digital version of the stamp set to make the background. I tilted pre-colored image and placed several copies of it next to each other. After printing it out, I adhered 1/8" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to cover all the caps between little squares and covered the tape with Raspberry Soda Glitter. Denim Glitter has adhered to the swirls and tiny dots with Sakura Glue Pen.
For the sentiment, used the rubber stamp. It is stamped with Versamark ink to the Vellum and it is heat embossed with Blue Ribbon Embossing Powder. I cut it out with Spellbinders (Radiant Rectangles) die.
Those tulips are also pre-colored digital stamps. I just added some sparkle to them with Sakura Glue Pen and Raspberry Soda Glitter. Ladybugs are covered with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Strawberry Coulis).
I made a grass border for the tulips to grow in. It is cut with PoppyStamps (Grassland Border) die. It is colored with AquaFlow Watercolors (Fresh Green from Spring Meadow set and Evergreen Fern from Autumn Woodland set.
I also printed three colored Ladybugs from the digital set. I added Dimensional Glue to their wings and covered the glue with Gypsy Red. After letting them dry a bit, I covered rest of their bodies with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ebony Black). Same Crystal Drops was used to make the dots to their wings. After letting them dry overnight, I fussy cut the Ladybugs with scissors and adhered to the card. Their antennas are drawn with black marker.
And as on most of my cards, I made another glitter matting layer behind the background. For that, I adhered the 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the matting layer, placed the background to the center and covered rest of the tape with Denim Microfine Glitter.
