Cherry blossoms-Clean and Simple style!

Hi Everyone! I was with some friends paper crafting and scrapping yesterday - and while I was there finished this clean and simple card! It's sweet and simple but still full of some fun techniques I've been wanting to try or do more with. First of all I wanted to try out my new glass bottle Sizzix die that I bought last weekend at the Anaheim Scapbook expo. Teamed with my simple Blossom stamp, I was on my way!

Here's my card-
Using the Blossom Branch stampset I stamped this on white cardstock - lightly colored in the blossoms with my copic and fussy cut it out.   I diecut my glass bottle from some acetate packaging and using my copic marker, colored it to look like green glass. 

One other area of detail - is taking my ornate oval Spellbinder die, instead of cutting with it I used it to deboss the details into my card - it's a little hard to see but look closely and you'll see the lovely details that come through. I backed this with some green/white patterned paper this time just having it show the sides, and not all around.

A simple little I love you tag and some Pink /white bakers twine to tie it all together and I'm done!
This card is ready for anything - birthday, get well wishes, thinking of you, or just  any reason or no reason are the best kind, it's blank inside and just waiting for that lucky recipient.
Thanks for stopping by!  Check back- we'll be sharing some inspiration projects using our April kit-
Have a great week!
