Michigan – Apple Blossoms & Robins – by Dawn Barrett

Welcome back to our second post for today showing you MORE of our

NEW Lower Michigan Mini Release.

Dawn took our Michigan Facts stamp set and created this lovely card. She used the robin (our state bird) and the apple blossoms (our state flower) as the focal images. We’ve been seeing plenty of robins of late and our apple blossoms will be blooming soon! This card is so pretty – take a look:

That apple designer paper in the background is absolutely perfect for this card.

It’s from the Fruit & Flora collection by Graphic 45 – super lovely collection!

I love the offset pierced oval dies with the darker green designer paper – it pulls the entire package together so nicely.

Here’s a closer look.

Dawn embosses her images in black and then likes to watercolor them.

A few pearls and the burlap string work in as the perfect embellishments.

I am just {{{loving}}} this pretty card made from our Michigan Facts stamp set.

You can find Dawn’s post on her blog here.
