Cherry Blossoms

I made something different today. Very different for me. I made….dum dum duuuuummmmmm…a clean and simple card! I know! Me??? Well, I did it! And it’s…pretty! I saw the latest challenge for Dreamweavers Stencils (which is CAS), and I needed to play along. I just had to. I was up for a good challenge. And, I had a beautiful cherry blossom stencil that has been calling my name! So, here’s what I created!

Yes, I really did make this! Seriously, how pretty is this stencil?

I dry embossed the image on a pretty, beige colored textured cardstock from Prism. I tore the bottom edge. Then I pulled out a measly 3 Copics and colored the image in very soft tones. If you click on the image above, you can see it better, and you will probably see the colors better too.

I rounded the top corners of my focal point, and added 3 little pearls. Last, I drew in a thin line around the border using 2 of the 3 Copics I used for the cherry blossom. Clean and simple! It was a challenge, but I did it!!! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Oh Alison, I'm struggling with this CAS challenge, and I'm SO glad I didn't look at yours before I created my card for this week, or I totally would have scrap-lifted it! It's so elegant, and I can't wait to see what you do next!
