Cherry Blossoms Are Blooming

Welcome to the JustRite Garden Tour Blog Hop!!!  Today we are showcasing three beautiful new sets, My Garden, Plant a Little Love and Seeds of Kindness!!  I have chosen to use the Cherry Blossoms from My Garden!  :)  Not only are we excited about today's hop, but did you know that JustRite is now hosting weekly Friday Challenges? You have until Thursday Jan 21st at 10 pm US EST (Aust EST 1pm Friday 22nd)  to participate in our first Challenge. JRC_001: Get Creative With Font! Use JustRite's font to make your own custom card sentiment, scrapbook page title, background paper, monogrammed or personalized 3D gift, home decor, you name it -- JustRite wants to see how creative you can get with Font! In celebration of their first ever challenge, they are giving each of our blog readers a chance to beef up their font collection by using this coupon code: FONT25BH to recieve 25% off all JustRite Font Sets and the Horizontal & Vertical Stamper! This Coupon Code expires at midnight January 19th US EST (Aust EST, 3pm January 20th).

My card today began with a base of pale pink bazzill, layered with white (pierced around the edges) and some Kaisercraft Christmas Carnival PP (isn't it great when you can use Christmas paper for other projects!!).  The next panel is more white with one edge punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch, layered with more Christmas Carnival PP.  Next I stamped the Cherry Blossoms from My Garden in Memento Tuxedo Black and the Border in Old Olive (stamped off once).  The border was cut out with circle nesties and matted with pink bazzill cut with the matching scallop nestie and on top is a circle of white embossed with swiss dots.  The Cherry Blossoms were coloured with markers and a blender pen and cut out (carefully!) and popped up on foam squares.  I then stamped the 'Smile' from the Seeds of Kindness set in Old Olive and cut out with Ribbon Tags Trio.  I put a mat around the sentiment tag and attached with white satin ribbon.  I finished by adding some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners and the sentiment panel.

Keep on hopping and see what beautiful inspiration is next!!!  :)

This is lovely, Kathy!! I think that border punch in white is my favorite way to see it on a card. Just pops out in all its fullness :D Lovely image, DP and pearls in the corners, plus a great sentiment tag to top things off.

You had me at cherry blossoms...your card is really pretty. Those wonderful little graduated pearls add such a nice touch, just like the soft ribbon and paper piercing. The little things really make your cards fabulous.
