Dawn McVey

I love Dawn McVey's blog.  She's been a source of inspiration to me from my very first card.  I just adore her style.  And now she's started doing videos too I am really happy.
So I made this card for Raspberry Suite Color Challenge No 21 and thought I'd try out her latest video tutorial on making these adorable paper flowers.  Click HERE to check it out. 


Supplies: Stamp, Notecard, Button - Hero Arts; Aqua Card - PTI; Nesties - Labels 8 and Scallop Circles; Ribbon - Creative Impressions; Sewing Machine
Thanks for another awesome challenge Dawn, and for the fab tutorial.  I may be making these flowers all day... :)

Okay, Lucy, I am rolling with laughter! I pulled up you and Donna's blogs at the same time on separate tabs and then got called away to apply medicine to Gigi's lip (cold sore). I just commented on your card thinking you were her! Other than the reference to burnout, my comment still applies - this is gorgeous!!!

Brenda Urbanik said...

Just beautiful, again, Lucy. I really love how you put those colours together. I do want to ask a question about the stitching, (which is perfect by the way), does it show through on the inside of the card or is that covered in some way? I have always wondered.

Jennifer Styles said...

Oh, that is just stunning!

So simple and elegant. And strangely, reminiscent of cake. A beautifully iced cake.

Maybe I'm just hungry :)
