Isn't this paper the greatest you've seen since Club Scrap's kit last month?
The card above uses lanterns, printed from the digital kit, that were colored with Copic markers. The stamped layer features the branch stamp on vellum and flowers I cut out from the packaging the cherry blossom stickers we got in the kit came in. I added some white gel pen dots around the flowers and on the lanterns. Then I used an air tool to add dark speckles. The sentiment is stamped and I colored the background with Copic markers to get some contrast from the purple card base.

You know a collection wouldn't be complete for me if it didn't have a round card in it. The card above is one of my most favorite cards from this kit, From the shape, to the sentiment, and the pretty flowers (and I'm not a flower kind of girl!), I like it all!
I stamped the sentiment on one of the tags that came with the kit, traced around the outside of it to give a border, and attached some of the variegated ribbon to the end.
After stamping and adding a little color to the blossoms, I added my signature "tatting" to the outside edge.

The white card base - it's a single layer - is some paper I picked up somewhere along my tragic, ill-advised, do-you-really-need-that-paper-Kelly-Anne? life, and it has embossed flowers that look a lot like the cherry blossoms in the papers. I added a little pink from the centers of those flowers and then dots that look like the stamens. (I used a Glaze pen by Sakura on all the stamen, so they have a bit of shine.)
