As usual, when I post more than 1 card for a challenge, I explain my thinking on the first post not the next, which end up being the first! Do you follow? So, as I say in the next post I SURPRISINGLY chose Dawn as my inspiration!
The first card she posted is a STUNNER! I didn't want to take the time to stamp a background so I used a pattern pack. I did use Rosie Posie because, well, it is one of my FAVORITES!
I will tell you I still have trouble hanging elements off the sides of my cards. I LOVE the look and I have no issue using a larger envelope it is just....different!
Also, Dawn used, I am sure, Copics to shade her flowers. I own no Copics (I am coloring challenged!) so I used a Dove blending pen and Raspberry Fizz on the Hibiscus Burst stamped image. Mine is more subtle. The sentiment, Dawns Signature Greetings is stamped on 1/2 of the Christmas Label die cut.
Another BEAUTIFULLY executed Dawn McVey card that I copied....as best I could!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
