An amazing MPS challenge

The Pink Stamper is launching a very interesting challenge. The participants will have to hop from one of her PS designer's blog to another to find out the key words for the challenge. I hopped from her site to other 22 blogs on the hop trail. Exciting!

I love the projects made by her designer team and the participants.

Here is what I just finished and wanted to use for the challenge.

This is a branch of peach blossoms which are typical of spring and Tet holiday (Lunar New Year) in Vietnam where I live.

I cut a small dry branch from a dying tree. The flowers were hand-made. The yellow insides of the flowers (cut at 2'') are from Pagoda. I didn't use the flower there as it does not look very 'soft'. The long, narrow leaves (cut at 4''), which look like peach leaves, luckily can be found on Plantin Schoolbook. I used the italic feature.

This is a close-up

I will add more flowers and leaves + hang cards (with MPS stamps on, of course) and lucky envelops and twinkling lights on it. It will then be a great decoration for the upcoming Tet (in about 2 weeks).
