LOVE it! I still can't believe how great this turned out! I started off with a diagonal gradient using Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Mint Sorbet and Julep Jessica. After that, I used a small brush to draw in my branches with China Glaze Call of the Wild, and used Sinful Colors Nirvana to accent that. For the blossoms, I dotted on Pure Ice Super Star!, then used my small paint brush and NYC Fuchsia Shock Creme mixed with white to add the shading. I used a dotting tool to add a small dot to the center of each flower/bud using NYC Fuchsia Shock Creme. And, that was it! It was actually pretty simple, but had pretty stunning results if I do say so myself. :)

Here is my gradient by itself. I had never thought to do a gradient on an angle before, but it just randomly came to me, so I went with it. :)
Thank you so much for looking and be sure that you check out what the others did for this challenge!
