I tried to incorporate those thoughts into my card. I started with the Large Floral Background stamp from Chapel Road Artstamps. I stamped it with black archival ink on cryogen paper. I then took another piece of white cardstock and swiped pan pastels over it in pastel colors. Using a Spellbinders label die, I cut a window into the pastels panel and layered it over the flowers. The sentiment "Every leaf a miracle by Whitman" was stamped using markers. I colored the leaves with green and the words with black. I huffed to remoisten and stamped on white cardstock. The sentiment is from the stamp set Four Small Poems, also from Chapel Road Artstamps. I edged the pastel window layer and the sentiment layer with pumice stone distress ink and added a little bling. On the centers of the flowers I used rock candy distress stickles. On the corners of the card I added small rhinestone flourishes.
This card also meets the challenge at Created by Hand which is spring fever/pastels.
