LMS073- Under the Dogwood Tree - KSS

The fourth Monday of June brings with it the chance for me to create another scene for you using some of Kitchen Sink Stamps' newest released images: Enchanted Dogwood Multi Step Clear Stamps and Words 4 Celebrating Clear Stamps. I have mixed with them images from Tree Friends Multi Step Clear Stamps, grass from Honey Bunny Multi Step Clear Stamps, and a word die cut from Hero Arts.

I am entering this card in the Stamping Sensations' June Challenge - Anything Goes as long as stamping is the center point of attention and interest. I sure hope the stamping catches your attention!

I stamped this scene with the large branch of dogwood blossoms across the top in the foreground to create the depth and distance back to the dogwood tree and bench. I have done this before as in the card seen here where I put the large flowers at the bottom forefront for the same reason. The front dogwood on this card was fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals.
