First, I have a couple of cards, using Cherry Blossoms Digital Kit and paper from Cherry Blossoms Deluxe Kit:

I printed the patterned papers, sentiments and digi stamps.
I distressed the edges of the printed panel and printed sentiment, added some sequined embroidery thread on the right side of the panel and adhered them to card.
I cut out the flowers, colored them with alcohol-based markers and adhered them on card.
I was going to add Dimensional Magic on the flowers, and once I did on one, I thought it was smudging the image, so I stopped there.
I also adhered a Cherry Blossoms Fan Charm on the right bottom side.

For the inside of the card, I just trimmed a printed paper, adhered it and added the trimmed sentiment:

The second card is a variation on a Gate Fold Card with a belly band:

For the belly band, I used a printed border and a cut out flower.
Then, I cut out the prints I wanted to use and adhered them on the card:

I also decorated the inside...I used a brown gel pen to draw strings on the lanterns, trimmed a printed paper, adhered it and added the trimmed sentiment:

And last, but not the least, I made a scrapbook page...a simple one, since I don't like to cover the designs of pretty papers:


I used a Cherry Blossoms Embellishment Cutapart with distressed edges on the top and adhered some layered photo mats.
I added little details like Cherry Blossoms Embellishment Pack Flower Sequins and Cherry Blossoms Embellishment White Micro Brads in the flowers' centers:

I also added some Blossom Stickers on flowers' centers and other spots.
I like that red photo's kinda shiny! =)
Finally, I added some gold (CTMH) and foam (American Crafts) stickers.
