Spring Blossoms

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I thought mine was going to be quite and I would get some crafting done, but we made a quick trip to Abilene and back.  So, nothing got made but, I did make a card today.   I even used a real stamp and ink instead of a digi image.  This is a stamp I have had for a long time and haven't used in a long time.  It is by Sarah Kay.  She has some really adorable stamps.  This is Spring Blossoms. 
Supplies Used:
Cardstock - CS is SU Calypso Coral and DP is from my scraps
Stamps - Image is by Sarah Kay and sentiment is by TLC Creations
Distress Ink - Faded Jeans
Die Cuts - SB Deckled Rectangle; MFT Die-namics Hibiscus
Ribbon is from my stash
Glitter - Stickles Crystal
Here is a close-up of my image.

Markers Used:
Copics - B21, B24, E000, E00, E01, E53, E55, E57, YG25,YG61, YG63,
