Cherry Blossoms

I tend to make a ton of square cards, because I really like the symetry - but sometimes, just trying a different sized card can get your creative juices flowing.  This card is 3 1/2" x 8" - and I love the long, skinny look.  I used papers from The FarmHouse Paper Company- Market Square Barbershop.   The borders surronding the text is from the Spellbinders' Resplendent Rectangles (I just cut one of the rectangles in half).  Finally, I used the new Spellbinder's Cherry Blossoms die set for the focal point. The edges of the flowers were inked with ColorBox pigment ink, and then each flower has a pearl from Want2Scrap to finish it off.  This was a quick card to put together, and would be easy to replicate if you needed multiples of a card.

Very cute. I love cherry blossoms and the polka dots are a perfect touch.
