This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Relax A Bit Featured February 14
North American Woods Featured February 15
Blessings Featured February 16
Dogwood Blossoms Featured February 17

For this card, I stamped the dogwood image using rich cocoa memento ink and colored with Copic markers: Y13G21. G24, RV13, RV14, E15, E0000, 0. That is matted onto the pink card stock. The card base is Gray Storm. I added a strip of the pink embossed with Swiss Dots folder and the other strip is Paper from The Authentique Uncommon pad. The edges are cut using Spellbinders Classic Scallop and Classic Triple Scallop. The pink edge of that panel is embossed with Organic Flourish. I then added the main panel and added yellow stickles to the center of the blossom. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Gray ink and the edges were dragged across the ink pad. I added the pink pearl and popped it up using foam squares.
