Sparkly Dahlia

Happy Sunday to you. The card I have to show you today just sorta happened. I had a stamped base layer in wasabi and pixie pink, with the sentiment in pomegranate, but I had set it aside, because I didn't like the color combination. But, since I had a half done card, I decided to finish it. I stamped the dahlia from fabulous flowers in pomegranate ink and cut it out. When I laid it on the card, I knew that the pink was going to have to go, so I stamped right over the pink flowers with pomegranate. I didn't use my stamp-a-ma-jig, so you can still see a shadow of the pink, but I kinda like that look. I added a few extra flowers, too. Sooooo much better with the new color. I mounted the dahlia on mounting tape and added diamond stickles around all the petals and in the small flower centers. I thought the upper left corner was too bare, so I punched a pomegranate flower with my boho blossoms punch, glued in on the corner and trimmed off the extra. Then I added some more stickles and I was done. It's not one of my better cards, but pretty easy and I like it.

stamps: fabulous flowers, baroque motifs
ink: wild wasabi, pixie pink, purely pomegranate
paper: naturals white, whisper white, purely pomegranate
other: diamond stickles, mounting tape, boho blossoms punch

I'm so glad you stopped by.
