The Shabby Tea Room #105 - Spring is Near

Here's my card I created using this weeks challenge from The Shabby Tea Room:

The challenge was to create a card using the photo below as inspiration.  We needed to use 3 colors from the photo and dry embossing.

I used this fabulous sketch from Cardabilites:

I highlighted the embossing with platinum stickles, when I selected that color, I thought it would give it a wonderful aged glitter effect.  After I had everything glued down, I wished I would have gone with the clear diamond stickles instead. 

I'm also going to enter this card in these following challenges:
