Simon Says Exclusive 'Hello'

Hi all :-) how are you on this lovely sunny Sunday morning ? :-) 

I am here to share a card I made using some of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive products. I was inspired by THIS gorgeous card designed by Debby Hughes that I saw on the Simon Says Stamp Blog a while ago and have been meaning to CASE ever since :-) 

I started by lightly misting and splotching some plain white card with various sprays then left it to dry before using a Leaves Stencil to sponge some Apple Green ink through and then applied a layer of embossing paste. This gives a lovely soft texture and I am now onto my 2nd jar :-) LOVE this stuff ! I then used a coordinating die cut to cut the leaves from vellum which I then scored the leaf veins into using an embossing tool. 
I coloured some white ribbon with the spray and have only just noticed the ink line along the edge so I will do that again, I will colour it before creating the bow this time,, you live and learn eh ! I often find that any oopsies are more visible on a photo than IRL,, do you find that ?  :-)
I added a die cut 'hello' and die cut Pointed Feathers and a few enamel dots and tiny crystal gems to finish.

Thanks for looking :-)
