My card is using the beautiful cherry blossoms from the Asian Delights set. I colored them with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I used an old sketch from the MojoMonday blog. I love the tilted panel look. The pink & green background panels is done with a sizzix embossing folding. I added some olive satin ribbon and a raspberry scalloped edge under the ribbon.

My birthday sentiment is from another new set "garden art". I stamped it on a Spellbinder pennant die and added some green pearls on the bottom right panel to complete my card.

See you tomorrow for day 2 of the hop. Click on MariLynn's picture below for the next stop on the hop.
