Cherry Blossoms

My newest creation is this Asian themed card in black, red, and gold. Embellished with a layered fan, coin trinket with black ribbon, and pearls.  This card was inspired by an oriental rug that I seen with beautiful cherry blossoms and my love for Japanese designs and style. Over at the blogger challenge theme is Travel.

Supplies and Technique:
  • Red Card stock
  • Black textured card stock cut with a Silhouette Cameo using the Sil store design "Lattice Frame."
  • Gold semigloss card stock; embossed with an Anna Griffin designed Cherry Blossom folder by Cuttlebug. The card stock also has an overlay of black paper dye which was brushed on and then wiped off. Embellished with pearls  
  • The fan is made from three layers of card stock and also cut with the Cameo and Sil store design "Flower Fan" and embellished with pearls.
  • The coin is a trinket and is embellished with black ribbon.

Spring Chicken

Mounds of snow and temperatures low... -2 degrees with a windchill factor of -23. Brrrrr its cold in Ohio. I have spring fever, I want to feel the warm sun on my face and enjoy my back deck which is currently covered in snow! Speaking of spring, maybe this card will encourage Mother Nature to end her affair with Old Man Winter.

Inspired by Sketch Saturday Blog Challenge

I designed this card for my Mom for her Birthday. I entered this card in my first paper challenge at The Pink Elephant. The theme for the challenge is "Birthday" because Ella the Pink Elephant just celebrated her 6th Birthday! While I am not sure if all paper challenges are a random draw or if they are chosen by the blog, we will see how it goes.

I hope everyone is having a lovely day.
