Spring Blossoms ~ DRU

Hello friends~ It's the first of the month so that means that there's a new challenge starting up over at Dies R Us Challenge blog and the theme is "Flowers/Spring".

Today's card is a slimline card featuring Amy Design Blossom Branch.  This is a lovely spring set with many different styles of flowers and leafy branches.

For the background, I started by cutting the stitched scalloped panel using Heffy Doodle Slimline Pull Tab Die Set.  This was purchased during a special-order event at Dies R Us.  I embossed a sky-blue cardstock panel using a cloud embossing folder and added a brick embossed panel on the bottom to make it look like a brick wall in the garden.  I then added three Blossom Branches, from Amy Design.

I colored the flowers using Distress Oxide Inks and then added a generous coat of Wink Of Stella to make them sparkle.  The sentiment is stamped on two, layered Colwell Labels from Poppystamps.  I added some iridescent gems to finish it off.

Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us:

Amy Design Blossom Branch
Heffy Doodle Slimline Pull Tab Dies (Special Order Event)
Poppystamps Colwell Label Set
Distress Oxide Inks

The Heffy Doodle die set was purchased during a "Special Order Event" that Dies R Us offers quite often.  Be sure to sign up for their newsletter so you can be notified of these awesome events!

I hope you'll pop on over to the Dies R Us Challenge blog to see what my talented teammates have created and join in on the fun!  

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful Spring card. Love the pretty blossoms and the background. This scene looks beautiful on a slimline card. I'm so sorry for commenting at the last minute, but life has taken over my crafting time. I'm hoping to get back to some sort of normalcy soon :-)
