Thank You Tilda

Hi everyone, how are you all doing today ?
I send you all warm thoughts and prayers for a wonderful week.

Tilda is enjoying Spring flowers. Roses and Cherry blossoms are only two of all the wonderful blossoms that bring Spring alive with beauty.

It is so pretty now in NW Oregon to see all the flowering Cherry trees in bloom. Some are pink, white and white with pink.

 The city of Tokyo gave the original 3,000 cherry trees as a gift to the city of Washington D. C. in 1912 as a symbol of friendship between the United States and Japan.

The first Cherry Blossom Festival was held in 1935 to celebrate the beauty and charm of cherry blossoms.

Today, cherry blossoms are connected to innocence, spring and simplicity.

Tilda is wearing a sweet spring dress and loves the lace and ribbon used.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Nestie die cut shape. CS from SU. Copic pens for the colors used. MS branch punch and all other items from my stash.

This was a fun card to make. I am trying to branch out and do different layouts.

Have a great week and have fun creating.
Blessings, Doreen

  7. Sweet and pretty card. Love the flowers and coloring scheme of this card :o)

  8. what a sweet card you've created! Luv the colors, and background flower print papers on the back! I agree with you. I luv Cherry Blossoms! It always remind me of my childhood when I lived in Tokyo. Cherry Blossoms is a symbol for not only Spring there but APRIL's arrival! :-) In fact, i made a shaker card recently for a swap, and MY theme for this card was cherry blossoms! Unfortunately i haven't uploaded the card yet but hopefully in next couple of days... If you remember it, please stop by my blog, and you'll know how much i luv cherry blossoms! :-)
