Springtime challenges

This cute card is for several of the springtime or Easter challenges.  Cheery Lynn is Easter, Joan's Garden is Easter and Stampin Sisters in Christ.
The Split Coast challenge is to crop your image.
I watched the video on Amazing paper grace on making the card 5x7 vertically and tried it for this card.  I cut some pretty embossed and shimmery K&Co  paper for the background and it has turquoise and green with tiny little purple flowers on it.  I cut my image from Fred She Said with Spellbinders label and then backed it with the Cheery Lynn Polynesian sail oval.  The center of the die has a gorgeous circle doily and I cut it up for the corners.  I colored the image with copics and sponged around the die cut.  I added some Cheery Lynn olive leaves and prima flowers with a Cheery Lynn butterfly  and pearls to  finish the card.
