    Hi Dawn! What I really liked in the video was how you shared your creative process. A couple of posts ago, you suggested making many flowers at once, so I stamped a virtual rose garden. I made more than one card at one sitting and I had such a good time! I love your ideas, as well as your beautiful designs. (I thought of you when making my cards. ) You are such a gem! I LOVE how your SUNFLOWER leaf turned out too but the dies haven’t been available since their release last fall, so I’ve been afraid to buy the gorgeous stamps. THANK YOU for a beautiful post! 🙂

    These are stunning! I love the idea of bringing the color out in the leaves. The white on white is soothing and easy on the eyes. Simply stunning!!!
