Cherry Blossoms

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share a card that I made using one of my favorite images....the cherry blossom. I have several cherry blossom stamps and I decided to use this digital one from Stampin' Up. I thought it would look great using black and white and that's what I went with.   

I began with a white piece of card stock. I sized my image, positioned it on the card stock and then generated it. Next, I used a die from Spellbinders Majestic Labels to create the embossed frame.  My sentiment, from GKD Framed Greetings, was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Having completed my focal panel, I adhered it to a black card base and it was done. I love how it turned out. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to read your comments, so please feel free to do so.
