Dahlia in Bloom

 Today's card is a unique take on Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge #256.  This was a fun sketch to work with and for once I made CAS card...kind of! :)

As I was looking through my stamps to see what would fit the sketch my dahlia stamp stood out.  After stamping it once and putting the rectangle over it I decided I needed to see the whole dahlia and did the technique "triple time stamping"...except I only did it once.  Not sure what you call that!  I also added a small strip of white under the blackberry bliss.  It was just too dark to only use blackberry bliss with the flower being so dark too.

I was trying to figure out what to put in place of the circle.  I don't do a lot of buttons and didn't want to do a bow, so I started looking at stamps again and decided a butterfly would be nice.  I stamped it and cut it out, then cut out a white piece to go behind it so it would stand out more.  Then just a quick sentiment and it's good to go.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
