Cherry Blossom - attempt 1

I have lived this close to DC all my life and haven't ever made it to see the Cherry Blossoms.. what is wrong with me? I love the look of the blooms.. not particularly the mess afterwards, but its not mine to clean up! LOL!!  I am so excited!

I wanted to create the blossoms themselves.. so here is my first attempt! 


I used two challenges to complete the card.  The Paper Players Sketch challenge and Card & Things Color challenge!  Go ahead, see what you can do too!




I am off to see the blossoms, and am hoping the rain and weather hasn't made them fall. I have been like a 6 year old all week with excitement! I guess if all else fails, I can go to the zoo!

Have a great day!
Hug the ones you love!

Thanks for stopping by!

Chera, this sentiment is so perfect with the blossoms. They are gorgeous - in real life - and on this card! Fabulous take on the sketch and I love that you incorporated a color challenge, too. Really fabulous card.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

Chera, your blossoms are gorgeous! I love how they pop off the card and they look amazing with that image! The soft embossing and sentiment tie everything together perfectly. So pretty! Thanks for playing along with us at The Paper Players this week! :)
