Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. Feb Sneak Peek

This is a sneak peek of a new stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co called Dogwood Blossoms.  I used the color challenge colors from SCS CC361 - Soft Suede, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight (I had to sub the colors).  I googled dogwood blossoms to see if they came in any other color other than pink and white.  I learned that they are the state flower for No. Carolina and here is a picture of yellow dogwoods in Greensboro!  I know that this is stamping, but I like to make realistic cards!!  I stamped the card base with the largest image from the set, then stamped the medium sized image once and the smallest blossom 3 times.  I colored them in with Copic Markers and cut them out.  I cut an oval frame with my Nestabilities and attached it with foam tape over the Simple Stories patterned paper attached to the cardbase.  I then attached the cut out blossoms with foam squares.
Thanks for coming by!
