Spring Basket

We have a glorious day here, I do hope you have one where you are too. My card today is for several challenges and I decided to go for an almost WOW scheme. I've followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday which was lovely to work with. My bp is a pearlescent white which I put through an embossing folder. I used a lace stamp embossed with guilded ivory ep although the real effect is very difficult to see in the photo - and we just won't talk about how many photos I took trying to get a half decent one. I've used double strips of white sparkly peel offs instead of some of the layers. Some punched flowers that I've added pearls to the centre of finish the background. The image is a combination of digi stamps I've added irises and daffodils to the fabulous basket from Shelley's Images that is one of the images for round #14 of the Progressive challenge at CDAC this time. I coloured all of them digitally. I had a very clear idea of how I wanted this card to look from the start but had a few false starts before it finally came together, but I'm happy with the end result.
The challenges this is for:
