Cherry Blossoms

Hey everybody,
Hope you all had a great weekend, and are ready for life to get back to normal after the holidays.

Cherry Blossoms
In creating this card, I was totally out of my comfort zone.  However I was determined, and finally completed something I was happy with.  The stamp is called Cherry Blossoms, and is a Digi Doodle Shop stamp - one of the first ones Mom created :) 
I used my Promarkers, and the card itself was inspired by a couple of crafty gals; Renee of I brake for stamps created a gorgeous card with Dogwood blossoms (following her idea to duplicate some of the flowers to create a nice 3-D effect), and Kimberly of Just Wordz, has some fabulous video tutorials on using Promarkers, and her latest is (you guessed it) on flowers.
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the frame with a border embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  For whatever reason (probably my expertise, it's not showing up on the left side in this photo, but it is there.
Other mediums used:
Papers: by DCWV called Preppy Princess Stack, white from my stash
Embellishments: butterfly from my local thrift store, ribbon from my stash, and  sticky pearls from Michaels
Sentiment was created with Paint Shop Pro
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.

The cherry blossoms are so beautiful, your Mom is a very talented artist! I love how you've decoupaged the blooms and added the pearls, and also used the image on the inside. The sentiment is so inspiring, too.
