'Apple Blossom'

Hi Everyone,
Well I'm fed up with the rain already, it's been non stop this morning and this afternoon hasn't been much better either. Still it has given me time to colour up this little beauty - Apple Blossom - by Elisabeth Bell. I've had her for some while and thought it was about time I used her on a card.
Here she is, sooo cute!

Recipe
Stampin Up Papers - Everyday Enchantment ( very old)
Apple Blossom Stamp - Whimsy Stamps
Promarkers
MFT dies - Blueprints 14 & Flower and Leaf Trio
Stampin' Up Brads
Recollections Twine
Verve sentiment stamp
 
I used a lot of goodies that I've had for a long time and felt really good about finally putting them on to a card. It's surprising what stash you have but have forgotten about.
