CCMC192 and Blossom Builders

This is one of the quickest cards that I have made in a while, and I really like the results. Sometimes simple is better, you know? The secret ingredient is the Blossom Builders Kit, which is offered in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. The double sided die cuts blossoms are pre-printed so all you need to do is punch them out. 

This fabulous, simple layout is courtesy of the Create With Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge. I was not the only one who thought the Blossom Builders would be perfect for this challenge. Click on the link to check out all the other creations using this sketch.

I curled the edges of the blossoms just a bit with the side of my bone folder to give them some dimension. The background was embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder to add some interest. A Large Pearl and a brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack are the perfect centers for the blossoms.
