Under the Cherry Blossom Tree (Take 2)

Hello friends!

I am popping in with a quick post on one of the new stamp sets from Altenew's May release.

This Under the Cherry Blossom Tree is simply awesome.

Although the dainty-looking stamps may appear to be "fussy", but it really is easy to stamp.

This is another version with this stamp set.
I simply stamped, die cut and then arranged the pieces the best I can in a pleasing way.
