Cherry Blossom's



As I was putting on some lotion this morning...I was thinking how much I loved the label on this bottle & what a cute card that may make! Sooo I thought I would give it a try...and I think it turned out pretty darn good :)
I also wanted to try something new thatI learned from Mel @http://melstampz.blogspot.com/ did you know you can purchase bunches of silk flowers & take them apart, & you have instant flowers for your cards...tons of them for cheap!!! She also shows you how to custom color them. I chose to leave mine white for this project.
I first stamped the stems with stampin' ups Embrace Life. Then added the little flowers with some liquid pearls to the center. I used a small scallop punch with Papertray's Oval borders & corners set & more liquid pearls to finish it off.
The little bunch of flowers I bought at Michaels Crafts for a buck!! & I bet I have over a hundred of the litter buggers left!!! man do I love a good deal :) Seriously tho if you have not been to mel's blogg @ http://melstampz.blogspot.com/ check it out!! she teaches you something with every post!!!

That is it for now!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!! Thanks for visiting!!
