A different spring - my April Counterfeit Kit

Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog has a beautiful Cocoa Daisy kits to counterfeit this month - Orchard Path kits. Here's the inspiration kit (part of it, as Cocoa Daisy has many kits in for this line):
Being home dew to the Corona Virus, I have plenty time to craft, so I joined the challenge!
I named my kit 'A different Spring', as this spring is really so different, and with the inspiration of  The 4 Questions we ask at Passover Seder, which was last night. Every Seder we ask 'Why is this night different from all nights?'. This time it had an additional meaning, as we all celebrated the holiday applying social distance, apposed to our usual habbit, which is to celebrate the Passover with the whole family.

As always, when I make my counterfeit kit, I start with the colors: apple green, pale pink, blush pink, mango orange, peach, coral, grey, pale blue, some gold black and a touch of red.
Then comes the patterns: floral, stripes, chevrons, scattered dots, lace circles in squares, plaid, scales.
Here're the 12X12 papers in my kit:
I have here Carta Bella, Altair Art, DCWV and Echo Park. The scattered dots paper is foil gold, but it doesn't show in the photo.
I wanted to use up more of my 6x8 & 6x6 papers:
Papers are from Simple Storeis, Carta Bella, WhiteRus.
Another goal was to use up scraps, large enough for matting, cards and making more embellies:

I added stickers, enamel dots (lots of them..), chipboards, Prima's flowers, washi tapes and AAll & Create stamp set:
Last, but certainly  not the least, are my counterfeited items. There are so many embellishment in the kits, but what my eys were drawn to was the large golden clip with the peach ribbon bow, and that was the first item to counterfeit. I also made some 'chipboard' circles, labels, tabs, floral embellishmet and lots of butterflies:
And here's again the full kit:
I'm looking forward to using my kit!
