Peaceful Wishes

Quick post today while my kiddos are napping.  I created this card for the Play date cafe challenge 84.  I first saw these colors and thought back to my visit to China.  I saw the most beautiful brocade fabrics and used those beautiful fabrics as further inspiration for my card.  I used a stamp set called Circle Circus to create my own patterned paper stamped in Rich Razzleberry and Pale Plum.  My image is from another stamp set called Eastern Blooms also from Stampin Up.  I punched out small flowers and adhered them to the cherry blossom branch and used some black bling for the center.  I then added a simple green ribbon and small bow to finish up my card.  The sentiment is a rub on from Stampin Up which I thought was perfect for my card and the feeling I had remembering back to an amazing trip.  I hope everyone is having a good week and thanks for taking a peek!
