I just couldn't resist playing along with the great challenge at Fusion. I loved the simple sketch and the photo so I pulled out my new Papertrey goodies and went to work. The dahlias were die cut then the outline was stamped in berry sorbet using the original Delightful Dahlia stamp set. Afterwards I used the new Additions set to add shading with sweet blush, lavender moon and berry sorbet. The leaves were done in the same manner using shades of green.
I trimmed a piece of sweet blush card stock to just under 3" wide and cut it out with my Chevron cover plate. I left all the pieces in the plate and ran adhesive across the back so they would stay as one panel. I decided to hand cut a little banner for the sentiment and then trimmed the panels in gold using a gold paint pen. I also added gold to the flower centers. It's hard to see in the photo, but it looks so pretty and shimmery in real life.
I'm also submitting this into the Moxie Fab birthday card challenge and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
