Mother's Day Dahlia


This is the card I brought to my stamp gathering for everyone to make.  I cased this from the talented Jackie Pedro.  You can find her card here.  I like Jackie's card much better, but I wanted to recreate it using what I had. 

The CB embossing folder is called Floral Screen.  I stamped the dahlia and leaves from some patterned paper in the Everyday Blessings collection and used pop dots behind them for added dimension.  I colored the center of the dahlia with a gold gelly roll pen.  I chose to stamp my "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment inside.

Thanks for stopping by!  I really appreciate all your comments and encouragement.

So pretty Sara. I really like the giant black scallops to offset the delicate flower. And that CB embossing folder is lovely! Simple and elegant.
