Dogwood Blossom


The new sketch by Karen Gerber is on the Cardabilities blog.  I have found I really enjoy working with dies and so these sketches are perfect for me.  I sprayed some card with Perfect Pearls mist in the daffodil color that really looks more like gold. You can't see all the shimmer in the photo.  I used a strip from Spellbinders lattice die on top of  the card . and then popped up the  the Spellbinders lotus die, a MFT clock piece and  the lacy circle die.  The leaves are Spellbinders and the dog wood is a die from Susan's Gardens.  The arrow is MTF and the Celebrate is from Cherry Lynn.  I love their sentiment dies.  The cut so nicely and you get each word in two different sizes.

  16. Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
