Definitely Dahlia Convention Swap

IMG_6078Day 2 of convention!  Woo Hoo!  Have you checked out what we’ve been doing on my Facebook page?  🙂

Here’s my last swap card.  Don’t you LOVE this color combination?  Neither of these colors (Blushing Bride and Tip Top Taupe) did anything for me separately but together I think they’re gorgeous!  I have used Tip Top Taupe recently since it’s one of the new In-Colors but Blushing Bride was collecting dust in my stamp room until I saw these two together.

Dahlias are a special flower in my family.  My mom grows them.  I tried when I had a yard big enough for a garden. And my grandpa used to grow them and enter them in competitions.  It’s one of the few flowers I can actually name!  I certainly didn’t inherit the family green thumb!

Yes, I got the idea for this card from Pinterest.  Where else would I get ideas?  Ha!  I love the soft look of the stamped off Watercolor Wash under the dahlia.  I couldn’t figure out what stamp set to use for the sentiment so I used the new Greetings Thinlits.  Perfect!  What’s your favorite part of this card?

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
