Hello, You-CCMC303, PP196



Hello there!  I'm back with a soft and pretty floral card today.  I used my Regarding Dahlias stamps to play along with a couple challenges this morning.  I was inspired by the sketch at the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge, and the challenge at The Paper Players was CAS Floral, so that worked perfectly for my card as well.

Check out my card!


I started with a Blushing Bride card base.  I stamped two dahlias in Versamark, one on Calypso Coral and the other on Crisp Cantaloupe. I heat embossed them both with white embossing powder and fussy cut them out.  After adding a few banners in Brushed Gold CS and Crisp Cantaloupe CS, I used some dimensionals to pop up one of the flowers and banners.  I stamped my sentiment in Gold Encore ink, and added a few gold sequins to finish it all off.  Perfect!  Go check out the two challenge sites and be inspired to play along yourself!  So much fun!

Oh how pretty this is! I just love embossing this flower and cutting it out. The embossing just gives it such a pretty look that it misses with play stamping. Gorgeous colors! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
