I made this card using Danni from Paper Makeup Stamps and behind it Timber Top Ridge from Make it Crafty. It's a simple layout but I think it really focuses on the two images equally. I added a touch of yellow to help keep the focus moving. Click on the images to see it larger and you'll notice little details like the leaf charm, knot in the ribbon and a touch of glitter.

Here's the complete background featuring the Timber Top Ridge. I wanted to capture an evening sunset and blended purple into blues. However, I didn't catch on to a good technique until towards the end so some of the areas aren't blended as well. Next time I need to use the blender pen to lay down a wet area then apply the colors which will really help. Anyway, you should really see it colored with cherry blossoms! Check out Zoe's take - simply stunning!

Did you know? Throwdown! with Bobby Flay is a Food Network television program in which celebrity chef Bobby Flay challenges cooks renowned for a specific dish or type of cooking to a cook-off of their signature dish. After practicing and preparing the item in question, Flay shows up for a surprise competition (or "Throwdown"). During the competition, both chefs prepare their particular version of the dish, and both are then evaluated by local judges to determine a winner. Flay's record is 32 wins, 1 tie, and 67 losses.
