Dogwood Thanks



Hi all!  Just popping in quickly before I head off to work to share a card for two challenges.  This week at Dynamic Duos we were to use Crumb Cake and another colour of our choice.  I went with Cherry Cobbler and finally inked up my Hero Arts Dogwood stamp.  I coveted this stamp for ages only to leave it uninked for months after getting it!  Glad it's finally having it's moment in the sun.  :)  The second challenge is the Moxie Fab Stamp It Cards Thank You Challenge.  I also wanted to thank all of you who've left such lovely comments about my guest design cards for Paper Smooches. I've been so nervous about it but you all sure know how to make a girl feel good!  :)

Oh my...that dogwood is beautiful. Cherry Cobbler is one of my all time favorite colors and it looks glorious against the Crumb Cake paper.

I love how you did the layers! The flowers look super popped up, and the leaves left uncoloured are so dramatic :)
I'm also glad I'm not the only one who HAS TO HAVE SOMETHING only for it to sit there lonely & stared at once it arrives. All the time.

Wonderful depth and such yummy colors - this is a knock-out, Jen. I have always loved this stamp and you have tickled me to get it inked up again. Great work at Paper Smooches, too. So very fine, gal!
