Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. This month we are hopping around the theme, It's a Girl Thing. Right now is the peak time for cherry blossoms. There are few things more magnificent then the delicate pink flowers especially against a bright blue sky. When the petals begin to fall it looks like pink snow. It is really spectacular. The cherry blossoms remind me of my mother. She loved seeing the delicate blooms and loved coming to visit during the spring.
I wanted a soft blue background so I used the Blending Brushes and Seaside Spray ink on Basic White CS. Over the Seaside Spray layer I cut out the lovely lattice using the Many Medallions die. The branches were cut using the Cherry Blossoms die in Soft Suede CS. To create the cherry blossoms I again used the Blending Brushes, Blushing Bride ink over Pearlescent Paper, and punched lots of flowers out using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch. This punch is on sale for $9.20 while supplies last. It is retiring so if you want it you need to get it! I use this punch a lot.
Here is a close up of the flowers. I also added some tiny butterflies cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies. These dies are also retiring and on sale. The butterflies are also the Pearlescent paper colored using the Blending Brushes in So Saffron ink.
The sentiment is from the Festive Post set which is also retiring.
Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what Cheryl Hamilton has created for you.
