Do your remember the song...It's cherry pink and apple blossom white? I was thinking of that song when I was making this card. Also I was inspired by all blossom trees that are blooming all around me.'s really spring here!!!

I used this wonderful sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge #34 for this card:
