Definitely Dahlia, PP251


Greetings, my friends! Today the lovely and talented Nance is hostess at The Paper Players, and she has an awesome sketch for us. I love it! I knew what I would do with it right away. 


I only purchased a few stamp sets from the new SU catalog, but this one was a must have, called Definitely Dahlia. The image is so beautiful and stamps so nicely. I combined it with another new set, Happy Birthday Everyone. I love this set too, especially the nice big happy birthday greeting. A few embellishments later and my card was done.


Products Used: (All Stampin' Up)
Stamp Sets: Definitely Dahlia, Happy Birthday Everyone, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Mint Macaron
Designer Series Paper: Pretty Petals
Ink Pads: Mint Macaron, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Very Vintage Buttons, Linen Thread, Venetian Crochet Trim


Just thought I'd share a quick pik of Oliver. He's gotten so big. What is it with kitties and boxes? 

Hope to see you over at The Paper Players this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
