Card Patterns - Dahlia

Hello again! Yes, a second post today! It's naptime right now and I had the chance to play with my new stamps. So I managed to finish a card with Card Patterns Sketch # 59 just in time:


I will give this to my Mother in Law on Mother's day. We both love dahlias but haven't planted them in our garden, because we would have to dig them out every winter. I didn't use a sentiment, I want to write everything I want to tell her inside.

Enjoy your day! We finally have sunshine today and I am waiting for my little girl to wake up so we can play in the garden :)

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Everything Papertrey Ink, except for ink (Tsukineko) and gems (Hero Arts). Coloring media markers (Copic) and colored pencils (Faber Castell)

Beautifully done, Vanessa! I echo your reasons for not having dahlias - too much work!!

This is gorgeous Vanessa! I think you're in the same zone as I am even though you're all the way in Germany. I haven't planted dahlias either because I'm too lazy to dig them out each year. LOL But they sure are gorgeous.
