Impression Obsession - CHA Brand New Releases!

Welcome to the first day of Blog Hopping with the Impression Obsession team! We are hopping all week long and have a prize up for grabs every day! Check the IO Blog for all the details - see who has eye candy and details on how to WIN! We are all showing off BRAND NEW images for your viewing pleasure! 
If your looking for my Outlines post it is just below this post.
THIS is my most favorite image from the new release... OK, I have a lot of favorites in the release... but I do LOVE this DOGWOOD TRIO! We have several pink and white Dogwoods in my yard, they are so pretty when they bloom. 
I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Classic Crest Natural White (a soft ivory color). I used the out of the box technique and a large circle nestie to frame the image. I used these two grey Copics to color the background. 
I layered the image using a second die cut circle and finished coloring the image. The only color on the petals is a tiny bit of G20. I added some Crackle Accents over the yellow centers adding a touch of shine and texture.
The finished card consists of layers created with Spellbinder's Grand Circle Nesties and Grand Large Scallop Circles. A few of the layers are popped up with foam tape. I used a dab of Ultimate Glue to adhere the bow along the top. A few large gold pearls in between each scallop finished the card off.
