A dear colleague was married this past week. Her favorite colors are blue and orange, and so I wanted to make her a card with those colors.  That was a bit of a stretch for a wedding card. But then one of the fruit trees in my yard (it is my first spring here and every bud and blossom is a surprise!) had these gorgeous peach blossoms appear. 

Stamps:Close To My Heart Universal Backgrounds, and Congratulations sentiment from
Banner Wishes
Tools: Savy Die Leafy Branch; Recollections Tiny Blossom punch.
Inks: CTMH Chocolate, Dutch Blue (retired), Sunset
Embellishments: CTMH  button, pearls, ribbon and twine.

for JUGS 237                          and                          Cardabilities 97
