Cheery Cherry Blossoms

I was finally able to feel well enough to create something, so today I'm posting a belated Cupcake Inspirations Challenge card.

The inspiration above is fabulous, but I was even more inspired when I looked outside in my mom's back yard. She has two variations of cherry trees in her yard, which I quickly ran out in the cold, wet, and wind to take photos of.

Gorgeous, right? Okay, so here are the DEEtails for my card:

I printed out the Cherry Blossom image from this week's sponsor, Prairie Fairy, in Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, and Pear Pizzazz card stock, I cut out the branches, leaves, and blossoms and adhered them all to some Bashful Blue card stock. I bent the petals on my flowers a bit so that they would pop up from the page. Then I added a Pear Pizzazz mat to my Bashful Blue and adhered it to a Pink Pirouette card. I stamped the sentiment from SU!'s Because I Care set on some Pear Pizzazz card stock, then wrapped some linen thread around one end before adhering it to my card. Hope you like it!

  1. WOW, your flowers look so real!! Something about the pink against the blue background, just makes them pop.

    Such a pretty card.
