Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - April Challenge

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well, and the weather hasn't turned too cold where you are.  We were really lucky to have so many bright and beautiful days last week.
Sorry for not being around for the past couple of weeks, but I had to take a break from blogging. I have missed you all.  I would also like to thank and welcome my new followers.
Today is the start of a new challenge at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. Sarah has set the challenge to use dies or punches in your creations this month.
Here is my card...
I used a pale turquoise silk card base, then added cream card that was die cut with Spellbinders Borderbilities. My stamp is by Impression Obsession. I coloured the image using a brilliance ink pad with a water brush, then added some tiny glossy accent buttons, and two tiny punched flowers.
I added a colour matched bow to the card front, along with the silver heart, punched tag and daisies.  Sentiment is by JustRite stamps. The15mm Aqua satin ribbon,and heart charm are both from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
My team mates have created some beautiful cards this month, so why not pop over to the Blog, and take a look. We would love you to join in with the challenge and have the chance of winning something pretty. 

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a Great Week!!
