We've had an exceptionally warm winter here resulting in an early Spring! I was shocked the other day when I drove down the street and the Cherry Blossoms were in their full glory! They seemed to glow as the sun shone through. That vision was the inspiration for today's card, and all it's sweet details, for this months Papertrey Ink Sr. Design Team challenge! (Yep... you guessed it, Spring is the theme!)
This little 4.25 x 4.25 inch card is sweet and delicate... with a touch of elegance... and full of spring!
I used Asian Fusion to build the vellum background as well as the focal image. Sweet Blush ink and cardstock are perfect for the softness I wanted. The sentiment is from the Communique Sentiments mini set. I chose a few of the elements intentionally. The vellum carries the same type of glow as the flower branches from the Cherry Blossom tree... giving the card a light and airy feel. The peals also add to the glow.
I kept with the delicate theme by using Papertrey Ink's 1/4" Silk Ribbon. Oh My WORD... this is such a sweet and decedent trim!
I used the Polka Dot Basics II impression plate to add fullness... like the blooming tree. And the Kraft base??? can you guess? Yep... wood branches.
Another fun detail is how the Small Scalloped die cut Vellum coordinates with the punched focal image.
I have to admit... spring colors that are bright and cheery are usually my thing... but going softer this time was really fun!
