Purple Dahlia:

Good morning - I hope you all had a great and restful weekend.  I have been busy working on a scrapbook which I am finding rather difficult.  I am trying to keep it simple yet I want it to look like I spent weeks on it (which won't be far from the truth).  The most difficult part:  no photos - they will be added in later.  It's hard for my to be crafty when I don't see the big picture, so to speak.

I was able to work on a card, I used Dahlia again - there is just something about this stamp that I can't get enough of, I love coloring it.

Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps digi, K&Co paper, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor Pencils (email me for complete color list), Labels 18 Nestie, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Dress It Up buttons.  Tools: sewing machine.

I made this flower card for the following challenges:   Catered Crop - stitching, Stamptacular Sunday - use buttons (I used 2), The Crafty Pad - pairs.

Have a wonderful Monday - see you soon!
