Yep, purple dogwood blossoms. I've never seen any myself, but I had fun using my creative license to color this beautiful image from WPlus9's Flora & Fauna I.
I had a request from a customer to make a card similar to THIS one, but with a square shape and dogwood blooms in place of the lilac. She also requested the "miss you" sentiment. This is the first time I've worked so closely with someone to create a custom card, and I really enjoyed the suggestions and feedback. I've been feeling a little uncreative lately, so this was a great way to get myself to the craft table with some specific ideas in mind.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding, Ripe Avocado, white)

Not sure why the flowers look washed out in the first photo. I get so frustrated with the way they upload into Blogger sometimes, even when they look great in Photoshop.
Thanks for stopping by with your wonderful comments today! Have a good one!
