Sakura in March by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hello peeps!  Here we are with a brand new month.  That means a brand new monthly Facebook challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.
This month's theme is "Die Cuts or Punches or Both".  I chose the beautiful "Sakura in March" image, found here:
Here is my Design Team inspirational card:

Isn't she gorgeous?  I have coloured her with my usual mediums (Copics and Polychromos).  I used die cuts for the frame and the blue flower, and punches for all the handmade flowers.  It is hard to see but I applied clear Wink of Stella to her wings. The sentiment is computer generated and is raised with 3-D foam.  Lastly, I placed Swarovski crystals in the center of all the flowers. 

Ching-Chou also has a challenge blog.  Check it out here: 
Thank you so much for visiting.  I sincerely appreciate it.  I wish you a happy day.  Stay well and stay safe.  Hugs, Lori xx
