I hope you enjoy it.

Stamps: Hero Arts Clear - Sending Smiles
Cardstock: Mulberry Cardstock & Xpress-it Blending Cardstock
Paper: Echo Park Springtime collection Pack
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Copics: E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG21, YG23, YG25,YG91, RV00, RV11, RV23, RV25, RV91, RV93, RV95

Tutorial:
Cut mulberry cardstock to make a card base measuring 150mm x 150mm
From the Springtime Pack from Echo Park:
•    cut the scallop paper 145mm x 145mm
•    flower border just a little wider than the flowers and 145mm in length,
•    the Clouds 145mm x 55mm

add all the cut pieces to the card base with double sided tape.
From the sheet of Sticker Elements, add the tree to the card, the bird, some hearts, and a few butterflies.  Place some mini Rhinestones into the centre of the butterflies, colouring with copic markers if desired.
I have also used the letter stickers to add the name of my daughter who will get this card for her 10th Birthday coming up in July.
Using some of the yellow papers from the pack cut out a sun, add to the card with foam tape between each layer.
Stamp the little girl, the watering can and some flowers from the Sending Smiles set onto Xpress it Blending Cardstock, colour with Copics and trim.
Add the girl to the card, the flowers to the hair and the watering can with foam tape.
Lastly add some stickles to the edge of the clouds and the dots on the trees.
