Cherry Blossoms

Hi all, hope you are all well.  We are just about drying out here in West Yorkshire.  We've had a terrible week of torrential rain, and very strong winds.  Fortunately, we are high up, but people living near by have been flooded out of their homes...how awful!
I have been very busy over the past week, so haven't had a chance to blog. I was asked to make some wedding cards...mainly white, with pale blossoms.  I knew straight away which stamp set to reach for...Cherry Blossoms by Flourishes.
Cindy is the host for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge and she has asked us to make something from our desk.  I have put together a card, with things that were left over from my wedding cards.  I hope this is acceptable...

My base card was cut on the Cameo. I then layered two of the Spellbinder Splendid Circles.  On the smaller circle I stamped my cherry blossom and coloured with a combo of distress inks and PM's. To embellish, I added a simple ribbon bow, pearls and decorative pin.
This is not an exact replica of the wedding cards I made, but I quite like the finished result.

Ingredients...
Plain White card stock
Flourishes - 'Cherry Blossoms' set of stamps
Spellbinders - Splendid Circles
PM's - Tea Green and Lime  
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Fired Brick
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop  - Pearls, Ribbon and Decorative Pin 

Thank you for stopping by xx

So pretty and delicate Sasha. I've never bought the Splendid Circles dies, but lately I've seen some beautiful cards done with them. I think I'm going to need them! I love the cherry blossoms on your card too, they go so well with the lacy dies, and the delicate coloring is so beautiful.

This is just stunning Sasha - as are all the cards you make. I love the delicate looking doilies all layered together like this and the beautiful blossom image is just right for the focal point in the centre. It is awful that people are having to cope with flooding - we've all been complaining about the unseasonal weather but this puts it into perspective. Vicky x
