Flowers in Reverse: MIM with Dawn


Hi! I'm playing along with Dawn McVey and Papertrey's MIM,
where we're challenged to feature our flowers in reverse. Instead of Dawn's usual 
bold colorful florals, she keeps them white, and adds color to the
accenting leaves.
I did 2 cards, with die cut elements Dawn suggested we do
before assembling our card. 


1st card is built on a trellis created with Coverplate Stripes Diagonal.
Heather first showed us this during one of PTI's releases. 
Going through my PTI sets, I didn't find enough pierced greenery, so I used a Neat & 
Tangled Flower Medallion Builder die.
With that exception, all else is Papertrey.


2nd card uses the background stamp, Text & Texture: Roses.

So many left over die cuts, I could do several more cards! 


All products listed below will take you to the PTI shop. 
Play along on PTI's blog, MIM.


Honestly, it took me almost as much time to list all my supplies as it did
to make the cards! (ha!)
The patterned paper is PTI's older dot paper. And the dots are Nuvo Crystal Dots.

Anything I forgot, just ask, I'd be glad to help! 
Happy Crafting!
