Classy Cards Cherry Blossoms

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the new Classy Cards 'n Such "Cherry Blossoms & Dogwoods" Challenge.  This challenge had me stumped until I realized that I could turn almost any little flower into a cherry blossom!  Don't forget to use my coupon JENNY-10 to save 10% off your next order at Classy Cards 'n Such

I created the central image using the Memory Box Meadowbird Branch die set.  I cut the branches twice out of brown, white and green card stock.  The flowers are from a tiny flower die in my stash and I used a stylus from the McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit to shape them.  I cut the bird and colored him with distress ink.

The arrangement was glued to two Spellbinders Circles and they were popped up using Joy! Foam Pads for dimension. I glued them to the Poppystamps Claudette Frame which was adhere to a layer of Botanical Tea design paper.  I layered that onto a square of white card stock and then glued the entire sandwich to a 5.5" square blue card.

Last I added a Poppystamps Butterfly that was covered in fine glitter and backed with a pink Poppystamps Cheviot Butterfly and added three pink Dew Drops to the bottom corner.
