I've made this for a few Spring challenges, and also paper piercing/pricking which is the theme of my Card Swap this month. I chose to prick all around the edges of the leaves - hopefully you will see better on one of the close ups.
For my shading I followed the colouring Barbara (the designer of the image) - you can find the pic here. I'm happier with my hair than I usually am...don't think I quite got there with the dress though. I'm pleased with my improvement so thank you Barbara :-)
I made some stick pins to match using some little daffodil style beads I have, and twirled some green wire into sprirals (springs) to embellish. My flowers were cut with the tiny centre of die cutters, the pinking circle, a plain circle and the wonky square. I love using the wonky square to make flower, it makes great pointed petals. They were cut from white card and I edged around with yellow tulip promarker while the paper was damp and before I scrunched them up....made the ink spread about unevenly to give a nice effect.

Some close ups of the embellishments and details.
I added beads to the end of the twirled wire on this one, bit blured but how you get the idea.
