I got to play with the new Cherry Blossom Branch digi.  I love cherry blossoms so I was pretty excited to see this new release.

For my card, I chose to interpret the two gems as two different colors & size gems.  I have light pink and dark pink rhinestones in two different sizes on my card.  The three colors I'm using are pink, brown & teal with white are my neutral.

I'm using and old Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS111) for the design.  After coloring the branch of blossoms with my copics, I die cut the image. I then outlined each blossom with a glitter pen and added the bling to the flower centers.

I cut out the border with some Spellbinder border dies.  Some bling was added for interest on the border and at the top right corner. It's hard to tell in the pics but each of the embossed flower centers in the bottom pink panel has a bit of glitter pen. There is lots of sparkle on this card!

Beautiful, Steph! Cherry blossoms are truly one of the gifts of Spring, and you have showcased this little branch wonderfully. I really like how your papers and even the punched border have a bit of an Asian feel to them -- so lovely!
