Cherry Blossoms

 Ok I know it isn't spring time, but I meant to use this in the spring time and totally forgot about it, and thought it may still work for a summer time card.  When I was out the other day there were some trees in the parking lot of the shopping center that had flowers on them and so I am sure anyone would enjoy a flowering tree right now :)

I did a little inking of the center of the flowers and then added some pen dots for the centers.  I didn't want to go to over board on the flowers but didn't like the empty spaces so much so added some enamel accents in white to the branches.

  • Spellbinders - Cherry Blossom die
  • Distress ink - Spun Sugar
  • Scalloped Rectangle die
  • Memento Cardstock paper
  • Stamps of Life - Minis 4 circles sentiment stamp and stamped scallop
  • EK Success - Circle punch
  • Enamel Accents - white
We are still in our heat wave of in the 100's with heat index but we are told this weekend we will get some relief, can't wait!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Just gorgeous Connie.

I figured out how to remove the extra space on the the new blog. There is a icon on the top right of the page looks like a tree with a line through it. It says clear formatting.

Hugs Diane

I love how you dressed up your flowers with inking and dots, and the enamel dots on your branches add just the right touch! Beautiful card!

Hi Connie. Love your card. The detail in the flowers are very nice.

It was so good to meet you last night. I had a great time and look forward to September's virtual gathering

Flowers are beautiful all year long! I sure hope it cools off for you soon. This summer has been hard on a lot of people.
