Peachy Dogwood

 Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. My card today used images from Dogwood and Butterfly.

I wanted a soft look, so I stamped the big flower with Memento London Fog ink. 

I colored with Copics, starting with E95. 

Then added E02. 

 Added some shadows with BV00.
I filled in the leaves with YG91 and used YG93 to shade. I totally botched the flower center with the yellow, so had to add a pearl later.  After coloring, I cut out the image.

I used circle Nestabilities to cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory card stock and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink while still in the die. 

Then I sponged Memento Angel Pink. 

I stamped the silhouette branch using Memento Angel Pink and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I layered with Pure Luxury Sweet Mango, cut using Lacey Circle Nestabilities. The Ivory layer is 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches and embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug flolder. The flower was attached using Pop Dots and I also added a gold lined organdy ribbon bow. The card base is Pure Luxury Sweet Mango and finished card size is 4 1/4 inches square.
