My Love of Flowers

Hi! I was looking at my last post, a card with a focal flower, and the one I'm posting today, with a focal flower, and the one I made today, with a focal flower. I guess you can say I love flowers. I have fresh flowers on my kitchen table as often as possible. I grow flowers just so I can cut them an put them in a vase inside. And I love to garden. Well, flowers just make the world more beautiful :)

I made this card for the SCS challenge yesterday. They feature a particular stamper and then you use their card for inspiration, or CASE it. This flower is made with a dahlia fold and the instructions are here. I used Fancy Pants dp and cardstock. I spritzed the focal panel with Gold Glimmer Mist. My square scalloped nesties weren't big enough for this so I used the Beads Quickutz 12" die and made my own scalloped square.

I love this dahlia fold and can see myself using it more in the future.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great evening!
