Sizzix Dahila with Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance

Orange is not a color I would work with outside of Halloween.  It's out of my comfort zone.  But there the paper was sitting on my table from the DCWV "Pocket Full of Posey's" stack.  It was calling to me to create this.
And oh what fun it was!  These Dahlia's were so fun to create with the Sizzix die from Susan's Garden.  They started out as white paper, inked with Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and Barn Door distress ink.  Super fun to get those fingers inky.  Your not having fun unless you have inky fingers!
Some Spellbinders dies, Martha Stewart Butterflies, CottageCutz Expressions, and a few pearls and you have yourself a thank you card that is going to get a WOW when it is opened.  You'll be seeing a lot of "Thank You" card ideas this month on my blog.  There are a lot of special people in my life I need to thank who helped make my Son's Wedding a day one we will never forget. 
This will be making its way to two special people who traveled so far to be here for the Wedding and even brought me a present.  I was absolutely so touched.  I am truly blessed with the most wonderful family and friends that fill my life with happiness.  Thank you for stopping by today to see what's going on in my neck of the woods.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See You Soon!

Hi Carol, Good to be back hopping so I can see your beautiful masterpieces. This one is lovely! It screams to be displayed and the lucky receiver will probably do just that! Love the vibrant colors, the design, pearls, and your attention to detail too!!

Beautiful colors and flowers, Carol. Orange isn't one of my go to colors either, but look how beautiful this turned out. I used that same die on my first post for today, love it.

Hugs
