Sweet Missouri Dogwood!

This is my entry for the last day of September for the challenge at 365 Cards, Wednesday, September 30, 2009 Day 214 - White Space. Below is the sketch Pam gave us to follow, to only place stamping and embellishments in the black space.

I used the SU! Just Vine set, a set I bought on E-Bay but haven't used, for Sunday's sketch and fell in love with it! So here it is again...

It reminds me of Dogwood trees that bloom in the spring here in the Midwest. You always see the blooms first and when they fall off the tree produces leaves. It is always the first sign of spring and gets everyone excited for warmer weather. The small dogwood flowers are from a small flower punch. Use a soft mat, an embossing tool and push down in the center to give the flower dimension. The large white flower I bought at a local Farmington store called the Red Rooster. A local lady is making them and selling at the store. It would be pretty easy to copy except I have never seen the center punch with the tulip shape flowers. If you have let me know where you found it. I think a snowflake punch would work for the center also and make a nice winter card. Of course it had to have bling so I used stickles for the flower centers.

Well, that's all for tonight and this month, can't believe tomorrow is October 1st. Friday is Farmington's Homecoming so we only have a half school day, then I'm planning to go to Desloge (yes, it really is on the map!) to help with the traveling Vietnam Wall. Take care and Good Night! SAM
