Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge #35

Hi Everyone! The weekend is here again, and you all know what that means! More important than catching up on sleep and chores, it is time for the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge over at PaperCraft Planet! WooHoo! This week our hostess is the very talented Shawne, and she challenges us to use Rose Red, So Saffron & Kiwi Kiss with white or ivory for a neutral. Gorgeous choices, right?! I immediately knew I wanted to use Summer Blooms Dahlia designed by the gifted Kim Teasdale because I really wanted to watercolor the flower in these fantastic colors! Rose red is quickly becoming one of my all-time fav's.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Every visit and comment really does make me smile!
