Cherry Blossom - Sugar Nellie

Today's inspiration card at Sugar Nellie  was made using  Funky Kits Cherry Blossom stamp. 
http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/
I had to go rooting through my stash for a piece of paper that would go with the image and found an SEI piece I purchased a couple years ago.... you know, back when I was hoarding my paper.  I`m much better at using it now than I was then but I still have to `force myself`sometimes.  Anyway, enough of my rambling but I did think it was a good match for the image.  I also finally used some Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter and I like how it seems to change to different colours when the light hits it.
Be sure to stop by the Sugar Nellie blog often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

This card is so perfectly co-ordinated, Marilyn! The papers fit the Japanese theme beautifully and I love how you've picked out the highlight colour in the embellishments and in her dress. Gorgeous! xx

I think it's just as well we all do a little hoarding so that when you really need it you have just the right bit of DP...like you did for this gorgeous card!
The teal and grey colour scheme is beautifully livened up with those pops of orange and the whole design is so elegant...to match the pretty image :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
