Playing along with The Flower Challenge

I loved the current challenge over at The Flower Challenge which is a tic-tac-toe challenge. I love challenges that help me with the direction of my card, especially helpful when I might be lacking some mojo – LOL.


I chose the diagonal of embossing, watercolor and colour (blue) for my card.


I clear embossed the Dahlia Close up stamp from the Ton, then water coloured it with my Prima Confections Classics, which are the neatest little tins of water colour tints. I cut the image on an angle, layered it on some gold cardstock, then stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted called ‘Message Me’.

What do you think? I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking.

  2. Hello!! This is a GORGEOUS card!!! I love the diagonal layout of your card with the sentiment wrapped around it!! The watercolored large flower is set off beautifully this way!! Definitely a different, but fantastic way to use such a large stamp. I’m definitely going to have to use this layout in an upcoming card!!
