Sassy Dahlia

Wow, girls check out the Technique Challenge on SCS! I seen cards done and just had to check it out. This is so cool. I had a lot of fun with this one and the directions provided was fantastic.

For the today's challenge check here. And for the directions check here.

What I did was cut my card at 5x10 and folded in half to have my main card be 5x5. I used Real Red card stock for that.

Then I got my scalloped punch out, mine measures 1 3/4" but I believe the SU scalloped punch is a little smaller. You can also use a circle punch but the bigger the better. But, then again you don't want it so big you can't fit it on the card. Anyway, I used the Sassy Designer Paper (retired) but still pretty.

Followed the directions. Glued this to a Whisper White piece of card stock that is 4 5/16 square. And my Dahlia was formed. Now the center I have a beautiful gem stone brad that I got from Karen Gibson when I won her blog candy a while ago. Then I layered on Basic Black card stock and punched with the retired Wrought Iron punch on the corners. Layered my WW piece in this and then onto the Real Red that I have for my main card. On my Real Red I stamped little butterflies in White Craft Ink.

Are these not the most prettiest flowers you have seen in a long time? I love how this turned out. Go check out the Technique Challenge this week and create. You won't be disappointed with the results.
