Die~Namite Blossoms

Hello Everyone!

Today I am up on the Die~Namites blog sharing this card, which is a bit out of the ordinary for me, but this Die~Namites Spring Blossoms Die was just calling to me to be used for an Asian theme.

  I searched the internet for some inspiration and found an amazing photo which inspired this card~

Is this not gorgeous!?  When I saw this pic, I knew I needed to try to turn it into a card.  I used my Die~Namites Spring Doily to make the decorative corners.  I die cut a doily out in white and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

The Spring Blossoms Die was first cut out in black cardstock and then I cut the flowers out in red cs two times.  The first red blooms were adhered to the black die cut.  The second layer of red blooms were molded and then adhered over the first layer of red flowers.

For the background, I hand cut a mountain mask and sponged on Blushing Bride ink.  I used the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Serene Silhouettes for my bird image and the Vintage Seed Packet set for the sentiment.    I love this sentiment-it is one I am trying to keep very close right now- working on seeing things with a God perspective.  Boy, if that isn't difficult!  I have come to the conclusion that I am very impulsive.  But, I know that I can count on Him to change me from the inside out- if I let Him.

This week, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is all about 'Journey' .  I would love to Journey to China some day to see the Great Wall and the Terra Cotta Warriors.
