Ready for Dogwoods

I know I'm ready for the dogwoods to bloom. I love every color of dogwood, lt. pink, dk pink, white...you name it. And, they are such a beautiful sign of Spring and Easter. Can't wait!

I'm using  soon-to-be-released stamp sets from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. The sets are Dogwood Blossoms and for the sentiment a set called Blessings. The stamp sets will be released next week and the blog hop starts Tuesday. Hope you'll hop along with us.

I colored, cut out, and placed the dogwood on my folder.

Beautiful, you make these 'white' projects look so easy! I don't think we have dogwoods over here, but I googled it and they look stunning!

At first, I thought this might be a St. Patrick's Day card! I love the all-white, with a pop of green on that dogwood. I love dogwoods too. This is a pretty stamp.

what a beauty....love the textured layers of white and the border work....dogwoods are a fav of mine...we have one in our front yard and it is our messenger that spring is coming each year

Brilliant card! Oh My Goodness you've colored that dogwood so it almost looks real. LOVE dogwoods too. It broke my heart when our new neighbors dug up their dogwoods. They were perfectly framed out my living room window. I have to go out in the garden to see mine.
Hugs & Blessings
Bernie
