Cherry Blossoms Thinking of You

Someone needed some cheering up so I quickly made this card. It uses a Quietfire Design sentiment, Flourishes rubber stamp (Cherry Blossoms set #97) and Spellbinders oval die set to create a mask/stencil.

I stamped the flower sprig on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, colored with Tombow watercolor markers, then using the die cut mask sponged around with Distress Bundled Sage, then used the next larger size and sponged again creating the illusion of layers, and then the corners with some Tattered Rose. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx.

It fits for a few challenges:
Pollycraft Challenges #76 use pastel colors
Wild Orchid #15 Use a sentiment on your project
Top Tip Tuesday #18 Use a Sentiment
Lil Red Wagon #64 One Layer Wonder
Digi Doodle Shop's Best #43 Anything Goes
Quirky Crafts #2 Spring Garden with pink & green
