Whatever Goes Wednesday

I love Wednseday!! Its the middle of the week so its getting closer to the weekend and the new sketch challenge is revealed at SCS. This is my favorite weekly challenge since it gives me so many new ideas on how to layout my cards. For this card I found my inspiration from some new LilyKate paper I had. It reminded me of the movie "Memoirs of a Geisha" where she is standing under the beautiful cherry blossom tree. I knew this was my chance to pull out my new SU Artfully Asian set. I always saw these wonderful cards on the SCS gallery and that made me buy this set but I was never really motivated until I saw that paper. I pulled the color combo of SU Real Rust, Certain Celery, Pretty in Pink, and Chocolate Chip from the branch and flowers on the patterned paper. I added some of the leaves from the stamp set to the branch with dimensions and added some crystal effects. The ribbon is non SU pink satin . I also added a hint of copper by using some cord and brads. I was pretty much done when I was looking through my embellishment box and I saw a circle clip the same color of the Real Rust. I added the clip and did some paper piercing too. I think I will call this card "Cherry Blossom."

I thought I commented on this one...maybe SCS but I didn't see it there. Anyway, stop reading my mind! I love this paper and your layout! I was just looking this week for a cherry blossom stamp...I think I have settled on the Stampendous one! Now, I know where I can get some matching paper too! Awesome job!
