cheery (cherry blossom) hello framed photo

Enjoyed seeing & photographing the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC the end of Mar when hubby & I took a mini vacation drive there.

Created this frame using a myscrapchick SVG file, Classic Horizontal Frame, on my Cricut. Liked the layered look.

Cut the Hero Arts stamp which is:
'sending you a cheery hello!'
so I could use only the
'cheery hello!'
Stamped HA sentiment.  Thought the 'cheery hello' was a compliment good play on words for 'cherry blossom.' Cut sentiment using a Spellbinder banner die and before removing the die I used ink to stencil color the open areas of the banner.

Used Cricut to cut the Cherry Blossom branch,

Added embellishments.
