Scramble 81

I was able to play in last Saturday's scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  Arlene hosted and our instructions included: using and embellishment and a die cut or punch or embossing folder along with a main image being a hero arts stamp.  I grabbed an older set, because the flower reminded me of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC. Hubs and I try to go see them every year.  It really makes me feel like spring is here when I see them.

I used vellum with white heat embossing and marker coloring on the back side. I stamped cut and colored 6 blooms, used 3 of them whole, then cut up two to add some bulk, I wanted the feeling of those bloom clusters to come through on the card.  The interior has one blossom on a small  branch for decoration.  I wanted the flowers to be a somewhat translucent to let the branch die behind the flowers to show through a bit.

Here's hoping we all get some more spring like weather and that it lasts as long as this winter seemingly did.
Thanks for stopping by.

Cat, I love seeing this BEAUTY, again! That flower stamp is one of my all-time favorites!

How wonderful that you get to see the lovely Cherry Blossoms in DC. They must be breath-taking to see in real life. Enjoy!

This is a stunner, Cat! I LOVE those vellum blossoms over that embossing folder. How neat you see the cherry blossoms each year--must be amazing.

my daughter was walking behind me when your card stopped her in her tracks and she said "wow! That's a pretty card!" I told her of course it is! LOL You have a new fan, I think!
