Create this elegant yet simple handmade Dogwood card using the Detailed Dogwood Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

For today’s card, I paired it with the beautiful Softly Stipple Designer Paper for a soft earthy feel, and then used soft shades of gray to give it an additional touch of elegance. If you’d prefer something bolder, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library, where you’re sure to find some color inspiration.
