CPS 175 and Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 38

Hi peeps! It's Monday again! I made a card for the CPS 175 challenge and Curtain Call Act 38 last night but it was too late to post. So here it is. I had a great time making this card. I was going through JoAnn's last Saturday because they had a 40% off sale on their paper crafting supplies. I found this beautiful cherry blossom stamp. I think it might be the same stamp I saw in one of the blogs I love to follow, I'm not sure. But I just had to get it! I'm not very comfortable with using violet or anything even remotely close to that color. So I thought I would use as less of it as I possibly could. I know cherry blossoms are supposed to peach/pink in color...but what the heck...who's making the card here anyway?! Hahaha! I colored the flowers violet, it still looks good to me! :)

And if you don't already know, I don't know how to sew or use a sewing machine. Which is why I'm sooo glad for stitch stamps! I used one here from Hampton Arts. It's a really great set of stitches. I enjoyed using it a lot. I am thinking of buying a little sewing machine in the future though...I hope I don't end up destroying it before I learn how to use it! Heee! I was thinking of getting the mini Janome. Is that a good enough sewing machine for a paper crafter who has no clue on how to use a sewing machine? :) Anyway, here's my submission! Enjoy!!!

Cardstock - vintage cream, spring moss (PTI), pink, orange (Paper Company)
Stamps - cherry blossoms (Rubber Stampede), Turning a New Leaf (PTI), stitches (Hampton Arts)
Ink - Colorbox
