Forsythia for Spring

It's nearly Spring when the forsythia is laden with its bright, cheerful, acid yellow flowers, which is just what I've used this stunning digi image from Tiffany Doodles for, it comes as a pair with Pussy Willow in a jar.  I based my card around Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge this week, which is a recipe of:  main colour yellow, ribbon, stitching, gemstones.  Some challenges at present aren't, how shall I put it, very challenging, so this made a refreshing change!
Image is coloured with Copics and Glossy Accents, punched leaves added.  Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbons, sentiment from Craftwork Cards, DP is Basic Grey and Bearly Mine, corners punched, lots of stitching and some gems.  Card is based on the sketch from Stamp with Fun
My card is for the following challenges:
Stamp with Fun - sketch
Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge - yellow, ribbon, gemstone, stitching
Amber's Crafts - my favourite things - Basic Grey, stitching, digis, Copics, ribbon!
Creative Card Crew - Spring
Crafts and Me - ribbon
Cooking it up with Katie - 1 image, 2 DP, 3 types embellishments
Timeless Tuesday - flowers everywhere
Incy Wincy - flower frenzy
Quirky Crafts - sparkly, punchy Spring
