Legend of the Dogwood

I want to share with you today "Legend of the Dogwood". I used three digital images from Sugar Creek Hollow to create my card, the legend, swirls and vine frame, and the dogwood flower. I made this in mind as an entry for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #44.
I wanted this to have a vintage look so I chose design paper from K & Company and My Mind's Eye, sponging PTI Chai and Chamomile on the edges. I sewed one of my layers to follow the sketch and added "pecan" colored ribbon. I did use Copic Markers to color my flowers: R11, R20, YG11 and YG95. I sponged PTI Chamomile on them to make them look "vintagey". My card stock is from SU and Canson.
I think I might frame this and give away as a present this Easter!
Thanks for visiting!
p.s. I realized after posting that this looked a little dark, went in and edited my photo.
