Bloom where you're planted

Some of you might have seen this card half-done already, but today I managed to finish it. I started on it ages ago and meant to finish it for the Whiff of joy GDT call, but didn't get the time. I followed a sketch made by Ila. I just loved this sketch and I actually think this is one of my best cards ever.

Hope you like it as much as I do. I'm aaaalmoooost a little annoyed at the leaves being asymmetrical, but I'm trying to endure it, lol. One of them coooould be a liiiitle bit to the right... :D

Good thing I don't have repositional glue or I'd never be done with a card, LOL.

The text is embossed with clear embossing powder over "laurel leaf" Versacolour ink to give it a nice shine, like dewdrops.

Promarkers: ivory, cool aqua, marsh green, lilac, amethyst, cinnamon, burnt sienna (I think)
Stamps: Girl from Whiff of joy, sentiment from sweet pea stamps
Papers: Wild asparagus
Leaves and hinge: quickutz die
Embossing: cuttlebug
