Berry Blossom Gratitude

I haven't been able to post much lately. Things have been a bit crazy around here. BUT...I am back today with a card that I designed for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge. I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO244) which is a first for me! Here is the card...

I tend to be a "paper hoarder" and do not use my DSP like I should. So I finally decided to use this newly retired Berry Blossom DSP. When looking at the DSP, I decided to copy one of the flowers and make it a focal image on the card. I wanted more texture on the Calypso Coral flower so I cut the petals and loved this look. Although this DSP is retired I am so happy to have these colors for another year!
Thanks for stopping!

Supplies used:
Paper: Berry Blossoms DSP, Wisteria Wonder CS, Calypso Coral CS, Lucky Limeade CS, Early Espresso CS, Whisper White CS
