Build A Blossom Card

Hello everyone!  Are you having a good week?  I sure hope so.  The good news is that the weekend is pretty much here.

Today's card is kind of a wedding inspired card.  I wanted to be all about the white.  It's hard sometimes to do white on white, but I think this turned out great.  Alternating textures will help to set one piece of white off from the other.

I used the Blossom Petals punch from Stampin Up to create this card.  It also has a stamp set that coordinates, but I chose to use the punch only for this card.  I finished the flower off with an antique brad and a spritz of shimmer spray.  The bottom photo shows a bit of that sparkle on the flower.

CHA is this weekend, and I really wish that I was there.  Unfortunately, they did not do a consumer show this year, so I was unable to go.  I am really bummed out.  I really would like to go to the Chicago show this summer.  We'll see how the year goes.

What are your plans this weekend?  I am hoping to craft, relax and spend time with my family.  Those are always good things to fill the weekend with.

Enjoy your day!
