Birthday Dahlia


Here's another one of the cards that didn't make in the Paper Crafts call but this is one I'm not sad at all about hanging onto. I used the last of these stick pins I have in those colors to create this so now it's mine to give someone on their special day. I'm participating in the blog hop of "rejects" that starts over on Dr. Amber's blog.


This card was easy to make and I just adore the Sahara Sand with Baja Blue. I made the curving background by cutting out a large oval and then slicing it in half. The medallion of the flower is easy thanks to the die image that matches the stamp from Paper Trey Ink and some stacked nestibilities cut outs. I added a bit of shimmer to the center of the flower with an Atyou Spica pen.

Thanks so much for looking and please consider joining in the hop if you have any "rejects" of your own!

Wow, Sarah! I didn't even know how to attempt this sketch. This is beautiful, especially with those stick pins. I have this stamp set and it never dawned on me to use the flower in the center of a tag or circle like that - clever!! I am sorry that it didn't get picked up. You should keep trying!
