My Dahlia

After a very tiring but enjoyable day in the city, we took it easy today and recovered. I created a card for Lauren, who's celebrating her 10th birthday on Tuesday, but she won't be reading my blog, so I can already share with you.

As the chipboard letter was self-adhesive, I also embossed the back bits that were sticking out, preventing it from sticking to the backside of the card.

Supplies used: cardstock - Bazzill Basics, PPs - Basic Grey, ribbon - ???, clear stamps - Basic Grey Two Scoops, ink: Versamark, embossing powder - psychedelic StampWorld, chipboard letter - Basic Grey, scallop edge scissors, paper frill - Doodlebug, bling - Me & My Big Ideas.

I also had an attempt at the Dahlia folding that Ingrid referred to in her blog last week. I didn't put the flower on a card, but on Lauren's present. The wrapping paper is from Paperchase which I purchased at Borders.
