Blue Dogwood

I'm back from a quick trip to the Midwest (northern IL & southern WI) to see family. We had beautiful weather sandwiched between their extreme heat and terrible storms!
Good to be home in FL!

My card today is based on challenge to "use stamps" to create a background DP, image & sentiment. So here's my attempt at following the guidelines. I needed a bit of bling so the small dogwood flowers were punched from card stock that was sprayed with Ranger's Perfect Pearls Mists Sunflower Sparkle & Perfect Copper on top of a base of 'direct to paper' distress inks; Tea Dyed, Antique Linen & Dried Marigold. Then I stamped the small flower in Bahama Blue and punched out the flowerettes. Added some pearls and gems - what do you think?
