Dogwood

Today's card is for  CASology week 92 Garden  and 
The  Ways to Use it Challenge at Splitcoaststampers 
is about Arbor Day (Friday, April 25, 2014)
Dogwood is my favorite. What's yours?


I've used Susan Tierney Cockburn's Sizzix Thinlits Dogwood flower dies with a white shimmer paper. The branch is die cut using a Momenta die and the embossed 1/2 background is a Lifestyle Crafts folder. Distress markers colored the tips and  the sentiment.

Stunning Angela. You have certainly done the flowers justice in every way.

I love all of them but the "weeping" trees are my favorites.Love the graceful sway they have in breezes.

So beautiful, nice job with those flowers...Hubby bought me for an early birthday present...McGill's paper blossoms punch shapers...so now I can maybe make some shaped flowers too. at least I have some tools to try...smile...
