Sneaks, Release party and Blossoms

Welcome to day two of Flourishes May Sneak Peeks.
Important reminder we changed our Power Hour Release Party to TONIGHT at 9pm Central time in the SCS Forum! Hope to see you tonight for games, prizes fun and you get to see sneaks of tomorrows set! How cool is that!
My first card using Cherry Blossoms is a very soft and subtle colored card. I pulled out some of my memory box spearmint (favorite new dp) and used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 49. I added a few pearls to the corners, tried the button and twine again. I am getting better at that I think. :0)

This set is just so cool. I love the variety this set has with the images and sentiments. I pulled out my distressing tool and went for a rugged edge look to this card. I added a few pearls to the side and some piercing. Very simple but a lot of layers and for me that is not normal. lol But I do like how it turned out.
Check out the awesome creations the girls came to show you today:
