Another Spellbinder layered card - this one for Spring!

When I wanted to create a multi layered card for Spring, I looked through my Spellbinders and settled on one of the Fancy Floral Oval sets as well as a sprig die. 

I started with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" textured white card. I then die cut the two floral frames from the same white textured paper and edged each with dark pink ink from Colorbox. Next I die cut the sprig from a light olive paper - to make it easier to adhere I actually lined the paper with a self-adhesive sheet before I ran it through the die cut machine. Next I die cut a floral flourish using the Home Decor cartridge from Cricut from the same white paper and colored it lightly with pastel green ink also from Colorbox. Then  started to layer things up. To finish the card I punched out some small flowers using a Michael's punch; which I colored lightly with same ink as the floral frames. Before I added the flowers to the card, I used the punched stars from the floral frames, which I colored deep red, as the center of the punched flowers.
