Dahlia Birthday - Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlia - Paper Players 558

   As always I am starting my week off on the right foot with a card to share for the newest Paper Players Challenge.  Ann has given us a gorgeous set of colors to work with plus the option of adding a 4th color of our choice!  I can't wait to see what you all do with this set of colors!

  I needed to restock my birthday cards so I thought a beautiful big flower using these colors would make for a nice fall birthday card.  The Sale-a-Bration reward stamp set Delicate Dahlias was the perfect big flower!

  Look at that beauty! I was surprised that I got these colors to all play nicely together without too much trouble.  Sometimes I have a tough time when two colors are similar but these came together and I even liked it all on the first design go round!  

  For my 4th color I went with gold by bringing in some gold embossing for the sentiment and Gold Metallic Specialty paper.  It has a nice brushed texture to it and really makes for a pretty layer.  

  Some fussy cutting and dimensionals for the dahlia to make it pop and a few Rich Razzleberry sequins from the Artistry Blooms pack add just a little bit more shine finish this one off.

  Check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team and then join us by sharing your card in our gallery!
