Flowers,Dragonfly and a touch of Pink.

Good Afternoon, hope you are all looking forward to the weekend.
Todays card uses the Dogwood Rose, Dragonfly, and Sentiment from Claritystamp.
I stamped the background using Pink Chalk ink and added a tiny drop of Glossy Accents to the flower centres.
I stamped the flowers on the focal piece with Black Adirondack and then glazed. When the glaze was dry I brayered Pink Sherbert from the top left and bottom right corners.
I then stamped the sentiment and Dragonfly and added a button and some Twine from Creative Expressions.

Back to work for me, still re-organising workroom.
 Have got to prep for next weeks Creative Expressions workshops up in the Northeast- im looking forward to making 24 new crafty friends!
And of course there is Sunday's Clarity workshop too, which is full.

Enjoy your weekend whatever your doing!
