Blossom

This week's theme at CD Sunday is 'Spring is in the Air'.

One of my favourite things about spring is seeing the blossom on the trees , so I set off to search my CDs for a blossom image.  I found this one in My Craft Studio 'Quintessential Country Garden', and went for the black and white digi-stamp version in the NSR section.  Then I created the sentiment using the Add Text button. After printing, I coloured in the blossom using Promarkers.

I made the background paper by grabbing a 'colour' from the same Cd and covering it with multiple blossom images.

Now I look at my finished card , I realise it isn't what most people would consider to be a 'spring' card (including me!) No green, for example!  Never mind: spring hasn't quite made it to my area yet,so I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to perfect my spring-y card look.

I think your card is perfect for spring. The cherry blossom always appears before the leaves and your interpretation is beautiful.

I think it's a beautiful spring image. So many plants and trees have their blossom before any green buds appear. Love the way you've made the perfect backing paper for it.
Thank you for joining us this week.

Marina, I love it and to me it says cherry blossom! And that seems pretty springtime! So clever to be able to do this digi style, I couldn't imagine being this creative using digital images.

Flowers in full bloom - In my part of the world that's definitely a sign of spring:) Your card is really beautiful, with the clean design and the decorative cherry blossoms.
