Feel Better, Friend!

Hello Crafty Friends, Shirley posting today!  Our challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such this week is to make a card with either Cherry Blossoms/Dogwoods.There is a inspiration photo posted on the blog for you to look at.

I started out with a white card base and layered it with pink. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the blue layer of paper using Graphic 45 paper. I cut a layer of pink to go behind it. I took a piece of white card stock and sponged clouds on it using  Distress ink and a cloud template. *The  Modern Cloud Cover stencil from Memory box would be perfect for this*.

I used the same Spellbinder die set to cut it out. I stamped the sentiment on it using the Sweet 'n Sassy sentiment from the Get Well Critters stamp set.

Next I used the Impression Obsession Bare Branch die to cut the branch from brown card stock. I used my small formal punch to cut my flowers from pink paper. I used my Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to shape my flowers.  I attached them to my branch using Art Institute Clear Dries Clear Adhesive.  I added yellow beads to the flower centers.

I cut my umbrella from the Graphic 45 paper and I used a few Joy large Foam Pads under the umbrella to pop it unto give it dimension.

Thank you, for stopping by today. 

If you didn't have yellow beads, you could use either yellow pearls, or a Viva Decor Pearl Pen to drop a bead in the center of the flower". Click on the icons below in the supply list below to check some examples.

Love those blooming dogwoods, Shirley - the flowering trees are breaking out in blooms here too, so your card fell right into the line here! I like the Asian touch with the umbrella too!
