SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #31

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #31 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty.  Here's my inspiration for you using: Cherry Blossom

Not going to lie this one I struggled with.  I just could not get anything from brain to paper how I wanted and admit to round filing (trashing) numerous attempts before I finally was happy with the card you see today. Today's project is using the color part of the mood board.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the Cherry Blossom stamps across the bottom diagonally using versamark and applied white embossing powder and heat set the images.  Next came the ink blending using Distress Inks in Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, and Tumbled Glass as those are 3 of the colors from the mood board. I die cut the layer using DieNamics Mod Rectangle Stax and then using a smaller die from the same set I die cut through the blended layer and the card base layer which is a side folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock.  Now that I have a window I used 2 pieces of tulle to form the shaker and filled with some burgundy and silver sequins. A liberal layer of Tombow glue applied to the blended layer was used to apply to the front of the card. 
How the colors fit the mood board, 3 ink blended colors, card base of lighter brown, and burgundy shade sequins
