Nature and Blossoms

Hi, it's Jenny today with a card for the new Cherry Blossoms and Dogwoods challenge. I couldn't find my beautiful Impression Obsession Dogwood stamp when I needed it, and this challenge stumped me until I realized that I could turn anything into a cherry blossom.

I created the central image using the Memory Box Meadowbird Branch die set  I cut the branches twice out of brown, white and green card stock. The flowers are from a tiny flower die in my stash and I used a stylus from the McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to shape them.  I cut the bird and colored him with distress ink.

The arrangement was glued to two Spellbinders Circles and they were popped up using Joy! Foam Pads for dimension.

I glued them to the PoppyStamps Claudette Frame which was adhere to a layer of Botanical Tea design paper.  I layered that onto a square of white card stock and then glued the entire sandwich to a 5.5" square blue card.

Last I added a Poppystamps Delaney Butterfly that was covered in Cloud Nine Velvet Microfine Glitter and backed with a pink Poppystamps Cheviot Butterfly and added three Orchid Dew Drops to the bottom corner.
