Pretty Card Without Coloring

Today I'm going to show you another Pretty Card Without Coloring.  Isn't this a lovely card...see the shading on the blossom...but all this came from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Magnolia DSP

This close up of the blossom shows a bit of the sparkle on the bloom Magnolia dsp close up

I used the Layering Squares to extract the blossom from the designer paper--I used the scalloped edged one first. Then you can either use the larger layering squares for the backings or you can simply cut the squares to form the "framing."

I also added some Wink of Stella(#141897) to the blossom and it simply adds a bit of sparkly charm to the image.
