Blushing Cherry Blossoms

Hello everyone & Happy Friday to all!
Today's card is using the SWEET I Brake For Stamps Cherry Blossom with Dream stamp from I Brake For Stamps. This card was designed using this weeks colors from Splitcoaststampers color challenge & CheeryLynn Challenge(anything Goes), LOVE these colors, and LOVE these flowers! You can find all sorts of BEAUTIFUL flower stamps at the I Brake For Stamps Store :) you might want to grab a cup of coffee/tea/or even water, as there are many beautiful ones to see. Have fun!!
 
Card Instructions:
Card Base- white card stock cut at 6" x 12" and then folded at the 6" mark, and scored, so now you have a 6" x 6" card base.
Card Layers- Bottom panel is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" for the plum card stock ,then the pink design paper layer on top of that panel measures 5" x 5". then add sewing. Next middle panel is 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" for the mint blue layer, then plum measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", and then the Pink dp layer on top of that measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", add sewing. Top panel is 4 3/4" x 3" for plum card stock, then mint blue is 4 1/2" x 2 3/4" , then the pink dp measures 4" x 2 1/2". add sewing to all panels.
Image Layer- Cherry Blossom with Dream was stamped in memento black ink on white 110lb card stock and then colord with copics, and airbrushed with copics as well. For the floers I airbrushed using RV11 and the centers were colored with RV34. The butterfly was colored with the same copic colors and then BG000 & B00 I then used a circle stitched die to cut out the part of the image I wanted to have fit. Lastly airbrushing the background with the B00 & then added a half backed pearl to the center of each flower. that layer was placed on a Be Mine die cut I used.
Embellishments- Ribbon, Velvet brad, gems, half backed pearls, die cuts, doily, sewing

This IBFS Cherry Blossom with Dream is 1 of my MANY FAV's! I love the little blossoms, and the butterfly, so many ways to use this stamp! I think I have been on a flower kick lately as I am super excited for spring to arrive. I have buds on my Orchids that I keep in my kitchen, and then my other flower that my mom gave me has some BIG buds that are starting to open up, cant wait to see it, as I have had this Amaryllis plant for 2 years, and this will be my first year seeing it bloom, EXCITING!!! :)
HERE IS A PHOTO of my Amaryllis flower starting to bloom for the 1st time, I JUST HAD TO SHARE/once it fully blooms I will have to share that too!hehehe
