Cherry Blossom

A little while back I made some Cherry Blossom using the Memory Box Cherry Blossom die..
I used a twig out of my backyard as branch and some little Memory Box Leaves as well.  Here is an up close of the Cherry Blossom itself...
And here is the Card I made...  Can I just offer a word of warning if you are going to use a twig like I did...  DO NOT use one if your card is going overseas.  I made another card for a dear friend in the USA and never reached her.  My card was confiscated and destroyed by Customs.  I just didn't think when I used it... I did know that sending plants and like is not allowed but as I said... I just didn't think.  The one time I forgot to take a photo of my card... yes... this was that time.
Using the same die, I made these flowers as well.

As many of you will know, I have designed many flowers ... which I have made using punches, however, when I get to do the revision of my PENNY FLOWERS eBook covering using Die Cuts for doing our floral arrangements.  Doing some shaping and moulding of the flower dies that are around today, can make them look so much nicer and give a life like look.  Colouring your petals also gives them such a pretty appearance.
