Cherry Blossom Bliss!


Hi there! Today's card for Fabulous Fridays at Sugar Creek Hollow was quite a challenge ~ No Designer Paper! ::: insert panic look here! ::: I love, love, LOVE me some DSP, so this was quite a stretch but I soon realized that with a wonderful image, you can rule the paper world :)


Using an image you've seen before, I paired up this Cherry Blossom, colored in a spectrum of reds and peach, with some burgundy, dark brown and kraft colored paper {run through the cuttlebug with the branches folder} and a light green ribbon to give it some pop ;)


It was hard not to entitle my post as Cherry Blossom Blues, as this is my last SCH post :(   However, the store will remain open during the summer so be sure to stop back in! 


Hugs and blessings!

  11. Back when I started stamping (14 years ago), there wasn't much for supplies in Canada... and no real patterned paper that I remember. When patterned paper first came into light, it was considered "wrong" or "cheating" to add it to a stamped card. I'm so glad things have changed cuz I love using patterned papers!

    You did great creating without it!

  17. This is so beautiful, Kelly. I love the rich, deep color you used for the cherry blossoms. They look just like a gorgeous frangipani I took a picture of this past week in Key West! Beautiful job making a card with no DP. That green ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. So happy I "met" you through SCH. We still have to get together for coffee!
