Sister Act - Challenge #68

Sister Act is sponsoring this week's challenge with a goodie pack!  Good luck to everyone who plays along.

Penny Black's stamp set, Dahlias is featured in this week' s card.  It's available from my Canadian friend, Chelsea's store -The Paper Trail.  Chelsea has a great shop in Canada, which has been a fabulous source of supplies for Canadian card makers.  She's been loading up the store with marvelous goodies the past few weeks and a brand new website.  Chelsea is a fan of the very talented Jennifer McGuire, so I went CAS with my card.

My SIL contributed to the simple part for me by coming over one day and playing around with my Copics.  She did a lot of the coloring of the flower. It was a perfectly good flower so rather than throw it away, I added deeper contrast and cut it out for this card!  (Thanks, Anette!)

The close up helps zoom in on the image's use of dots rather than lines; I was thrilled to use a Darice eb folder that also used dots!  See, you can never have too many eb folders!
