Happy Birthday Watercolor Dahlia Card Using Stampin’ Up! Definitely Dahlia & Cottage Greetings Stamp Sets

Good morning! Thanks to those of you who called, texted, sent cards, posted on my facebook page, or wished me a happy birthday in any way yesterday! I am so fortunate to have such great friends and family. I don’t feel any older, but I’m not sure that I’ll handle my next birthday as well.

The card in today’s share did not turn out at all how I envisioned it! I wanted a soft, water colored image, but I took the softness away when I added the other colors. Not sure where the black came in. I borrowed the layout design from fellow stamper Brian King, whose Definitely Dahlia card was soft and gorgeous! I was searching for just the right sentiment, and couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I settled on one from Cottage Greetings. After the card was completed, I turned around and saw my new Tin of Cards stamp set and realized that’s the set I should have used! Maybe I’ll try again.
