A couple of things that didn't show up very well in the photos: The little flower sequins are actually iridescent plus the black panel on the inside of the card is edged with gold as is the message panel.
I was intending to make a Spring Mandala but lost my way as I was colouring for the colours aren't terribly Spring-like! Hence I have just two Spring elements in my design: the tangle Printemps & the stamped tulip images around the centre. The stamped lines were all but obliterated by the gold colouring so the lines were redefined with a Pigma Micron Pen. My next post will be a tutorial showing how I constructed the Mandala String for this tile.
