TD03 Challenge--Flowers!


Today's the 7th and that means it's time for another challenge from Tiffany Doodles! This month's theme is "flowers" and all you have to do is create a card using a flower. Tiffany has tons of flower digis in her store, but feel free to use ANY flower from ANY stamp company and join us!

She created several flowers that are within Nestabilities shapes so you can die cut your image before or after you've colored it, neatly and quickly. If you're like me, and your trimming skills aren't the best, having a "Nestie friendly" image is a blessing!



I chose the Dahlia With Oval which comes with two images. Besides the dahlias inside of an oval, there's some dahlias in a vase and I decided to color that image for my card.

The cardstock is embossed with the new Tim Holtz embossing folder and I sanded it to make the white show through. Love doing that!

The sentiment is from Nina Brackett's Heartily Yours Additions, and there's my hand dyed ribbon that I made to complement the dahlias.
