Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday, every one! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. =) Here is a card that I made for the Timeless Tuesday #131 over at the Flourishes Blog.


I have had this image colored for about 6 months now (yeah, it is one of those that was sitting in my 1 1/4" thick pile of colored images...) and finally I got to use it. =) The challenge is to use pink, a button, ribbon and lace on your project.


This image is from the gorgeous Cherry Blossoms set. It's stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut using a Labels Nine die. The image is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut by tracing the outer edge of the same die and hand cut.


The patterned paper is from the Uncommon collection by Authentique. The sentiment comes with the stamp set. I got the hand dyed Hanah Silk ribbon at my local yarn store back in my crochet/knitting days and I thought the colors works with this card.

That's it for now. Have a beautiful day! =)
