Black Eyed Susies!


Hello friends!  I know..... everyone's into Christmas.... so why am I doing spring here?  Well.... I'm sharing one of the new singles released this month by Our Daily Bread designs called Daisies/ Blackeyed Susans.  I actually made this last week for the sketch challenge on SCS but just didn't get a chance to show it here.  I paired the image with the Seed Packet, which I stamped on Kraft with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  The floral is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics.  I added a scrap of burlap and twine,  an OLD flower, and button from my button box.  The dp is My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Rosy.  

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Heart Song Inspirations - Banner and/or Buttons, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, I Did It Creations - Flowers, One Stitch At A Time -  "Be Square", Catch The Bug - Anything goes, Craft Your Days Away  -  Buttons or bows

That's it for today!  Hope you all have a fantastic week!

Hi Grace~

Can you say "phenomenal?" That's what describes this card! It is phenomenal! It is so beautifully made! I love the richness of the paper and the color of the petals, and I love the texture of the burlap and twine! I'm glad that most of us stampers are pack rats...that flower is perfect for this card...especially with that button!

I could sit and look at Dawn's art and craft work all day long! Who couldn't?

Dawn, I am blessed to know more about who you are...on the inside. I know how fabulous your coloring and projects are on the outside.

This card is precious, and is the perfect match for this beautiful Scripture. I'd love to know what colors you use to color red-hair! I don't have that down yet, and have almost all red heads in my family! LOL

Thank you for serving here at SSIC!
