Thank You Dahlia:

Good morning all!  Happy Valentine's Day!

I am excited to share my card with you today.  Mainly because I colored it all myself!  I have a new obsession:  PrismaColor pencils!  This is my first attempt at using them and I loved every minute of it - I think I will buy some more pencils on the weekend :)

I used the Dahlia stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps:
Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps digi;  Brenda Walton paper;  DCWV and Recollections cardstock;  Prismacolors (928, 930, 1072, 1052, 909);  Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder;  BasicGrey button;  My Mind's Eye bakers twine.  Tools:  distresser, sewing machine.

I made this Thank You card for the following challenges:  Digital Tuesday and Hiding in My Craft Room - use your stash/scraps;  Make It Colourful - spring colors;  Love to Create - buttons and bow;  Simon Says Stamp and Show - anything goes!

Enjoy your Tuesday!  I think I will attempt another Prismacolor card tonight.  Thanks for visiting!
