Quick morning make

I like to enter the Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge each week

and last week I was picked as a winner!!

 Now I am very pleased to have some new images from

I will play with them soon!!

Anyway this week the theme is cherry blossom.

I have been an expat for the last 17 years and it has been rare that I've been in England at this time of year - this year I am really enjoying the snowdrops, the daffodils, the blossom...
Suddenly the roads are lined with beautiful blossom covered trees!

For my ATC I started with a 2.5 x 3.5 in. rectangle of red card 
matted with a background I made myself - and I think gives the impression of blossom!

This background was made by smearing distress ink (TH worn lipstick) on an acrylic block and then dripping alcohol blending solution on it.
 The result was then picked up with some appropriate card.

My plan was to overstamp with this Chinese cherry blossom stamp...

But can I find it? (This is a part made tag lying on my table!)

So plan B - I used a digi from Kris B's Pretty Peacocks

This I coloured with Promarkers, to give the impression of cherry blossom.

Finally I added the flower embellishments from my stash...

I will link this to Wicked Wednesday Challenge #151

Happy Crafting!
