Hi All!
What a gorgeous day we had here yesterday.  Although it was a bit humid it was most welcome. Cooler days are ahead for the rest of the week.

Today I'm posting a card that I did for my class at the Paper Pickle.  I'm using Lulu's Cherry Blossom Tree. I used Black Memento to stamp the tree on
bella's bestest paper.  Colored with prismas and gamsol. 
Paper is by Crate. I used a leaf border punch from EK Success, thought this went well with the tree. I decided to make a
paper flower to add to the bottom corner.
There are a few tutorials out there on how to make flower rosettes. Added a piece of ribbon under the rosette before gluing down.  Dotted the cherry blossoms with glitter. 

Hop over to Bloggabella, Emily has a BIGGGGG Surprise today, wonder what it could be?

And don't forget about this weeks Bellariffic challenge - faux sew or the real thing.  Submit your entry to Emily by thursday night for your chance to win some Bella Bucks,

Thanks for stopping in, see you soon,

Love that homemade paper flower! That reminds me that the ric rac die can be used for that. Hmm... weekend project. Great colors and coloring. How the heck did you get your pencils into the tiny lines on the tree? I had to go back and see if you used copics or not. Dang you're good!

Love the homemade flower & your entire card is simply stunning! I agree with Cath how the heck did you get the pencil inside the tree; if I tried it would look like a little kid coloured it!!
