Share It Sunday Blog Hop – Dahlia Days

Today’s card is part of the Share It Sunday Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, sharing our projects with you as part of this blog hop. Since there is no theme for our hop, I chose to make a card using the Dahlia Days Bundle. This bundle includes detailed stamped images and dies. All of which I love! But there is one die, the largest, that I was excited to use. Once it is die cut, it is an intricate image of dahlias, small flowers and leaves. As a result, I decided to pair it with a background layer from the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series Paper. Next, I added a few stamped flowers and I was done! All in all, I was pleased with the end result!
