Cherry Blossoms Note...

A friend of mine posted a sketch on her FB page and I decided to participate. 

The sketch was very specific regarding sizes and placement of shapes. I am used to taking liberties with sketches but that wasn't an option with this one. 

I wanted to use a bright colour combined with woodgrain. The floral image was stamped and coloured and the background paper was selected to match the marker colour. That was embossed and mounted on a black background as the other mats were also black. I stamped a sentiment on vellum and embossed it with white powder. A few black enamel dots were added and I brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush.
