Dahlia

Happy Wednesday!  I am loving my new Dahlia and created a second card for the City Crafter Challenge 1..2..3.. challenge (1 ribbon, 2 words, 3 butterflies) and Color Throwdown. The design started from the Moxie Fab World Square sketch challenge.


 The stamps are Stampendous: Jumbo Cling Dahlia, Sentiment. Paper is from Authentique. The butterflies are Marvy Uchida Punches.  The flower is watercolor pencils and waterbrush. The edges are sponged with Broken China.
 
The beautiful colors from Color Throwdown: 

Have a wonderful day!

  3. I agree with Tracy as I think it's on my wish list too. I love dahlias irl and used to have a garden full till the nasty slugs got them all :(

    This colour combo is really nice and quite unusual. I love the white hightlights you've added to the petals too.
