Cherry Blossom Birthday


Springtime presents a most magnificent array of blossoms that make it easy to be inspired for spring birthday cards. I love making flowers. I wish that I had the patience to paint them. So, my compromise is to messily watercolor the center of the flower, the buds and the stenciled section (spritzed sponge). I'll try to be neater next time.

 Card Ingredients: Momenta "cherry blossom and branch" die, the Crafter's Workshop stencil, Memento London fog ink and liquid pearls for buds and stamen tips. 
The stamen is a snowflake punch by Punch Bunch.
