Dahlia Sympathy...





I was inspired by Card Concept Challenge #89 going for a layered clean look using "yellow" as my focal point.   Sketch #330 at  Freshly Made Sketches worked so well for me to use a new stamp set to make a sympathy card.   It's pretty straight forward.   I stamped the dahlia on water color paper with staz on and used SU retired water color crayons (Yo Yo Yellow and Barely Banana) with an aqua brush.    I also painted SU pearls with a Yellow sharpie.   You can't see it very well, but I highlighted the dahlia with a Nuvo Shimmer glitter pen (from Simon Says).
Supplies
Paper Studio-grey gingham
FSJ-  dahlia stamp set and dies and black licorice string-
SU- Sentiment "Bloom With Hope" hostess retired now
Spellbinders-embossing folder (bought it on clearance at Michaels---very thick folder--took some fanangling to get it run through the cuttlebug, soon realized why it was on clearance)
