Cherry Blossoms for a Birthday

 Cherry Blossoms are so beautiful and remind me of spring time...nice to think about on a cold Ohio day. I stamped this image on white card stock and colored with Copics and matted on a lovely green mat. Followed a sketch to assemble with Pink card base and an embossed mat of White finished with scalloped half circles. This will be a birthday card to send this spring.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge: This week is a photo (shown on left)  inspired challenge. I was inspired by the colors of pink and the color of the grass in the topiary.
Card Positioning System: Sketch CPS #251.
Anything Goes Challenge: Anything Goes.
CRAFT Challenge: Theme is Celebrations.
Charisma Challenge: Happy Birthday is theme.
DYSU Challenge: Be Pinky.
The ABC Challenge: H is for Happy Bithday.
Let's Ink It Up: Anything Goes.
Lollipop Crafts: Use no embellishments..did not realize that I had not used any until I posted. The stamp really is the focus of this card.

Stamps: Flourishes "Cherry Blossoms" and Paper Pretties "Happy Birthday"
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Bamboo Leaves Marker
Copics: RV000, RV21, RV23, GO9
Papers: Flourishes Classic White CS, DCWV Green textured Adhesive CS, Pink CS from stash

Such beautiful flowers! Makes me homesick for the silk cherry blossom tree I had to leave at my old house! Oh poor me, guess I'd better look out at my hibiscus, bird of paradise, and poinsettias and count my blessings!! So glad I'm not dealing with Patti's 14 inches of snow!
