CottageCutz Bella Springtime Tree

Greetings friends and bloggers, it's Carol here today!   Have you ever had a die touch your heart and you just know that there isn't much that needs to be done to a card because the die speaks for itself?  That is what the Bella Spring Tree die is all about.  It's feminine swirling branches are just lovely against this green and white gingham paper.
 The Bella Spring Tree was cut on dark brown cardstock and white cardstock.  Little pearls were added to the flowers on the brown tree and it was attached to Resplendent Rectangles.    The corners are 1-1/8" brown squares that were cut in half and decorated with pieces cut from the white cardstock tree to fit inside the triangle.  It carries the theme of the tree to the edges of the card so perfectly and adds another element of femininity.
Nothing says summer like Gerber Daisies.  These were created from a punch.  The centers are flocking and they were mounted on top of the Bella Leafy Branch.  Two little Martha Stewart Butterflies complete the card.  Thank you so much for stopping by today to view my project.  Happy Crafting!  See you soon.  Here are the CottageCutz dies used:

STUNNING! Great colors, Carol! The Spring tree really stands out. I love how you did the corners and used white cuts from the same tree. Gerber Daisies go with the whole card so well. So creative and inspiring!
