Bridal Shower Blooms

Thank you *so* very much for all the sweet, generous comments and feedback on my last project!!! The PWCO Friends & Family blog hop ***winners*** have been announced and one winner came from my comments! Congrats to WENDY!!!

Please send Peggy an email: peggy@paperworksco.com to claim your Safari Friends Collection of stamps! All winners have until next monday (June 14th) to contact Peggy, after that she will select another random comment. :) Now for a new card...

I made this for a bridal shower. I wanted to make a Spring-like card, so I was inspired by the Blooming with Happiness dress, the Birds and Vines cuttlebug folder and, my favourite, cherry blossoms!!!

I added Stickles to the centres of the punched out cherry blossoms and the blooms on the dress. Core'dinations paper and Cuttlebug embossing folders are *made* to go together!!! I sanded the paper a bit more after embossing it, to further bring out the birds and vines.

Thanks for stopping by!
