Just for You Dahlia

This month at the Power Poppy blog Cindy Lawrence is the host for the Power and Spark Challenge and it's all about portion control. She wants us to use only portions of images, no full images allowed. Pretty fun idea!

I instantly thought of the Dahlia XL image for my card and I decided to use a retired die from SU to create my portion control. I cut out the die first and then stamped the image across it. By doing this the outer side edges of the flower were cut off, leaving the center as the main focus of the card. If I had chosen a smaller die I could take off even more of the outer petals but I really liked how this die looked with the dahlia so decided to keep it as is. 

I colored the image in with some orange copics and then decided to use some orange and black papers for the background to carry the color scheme. I wanted a sentiment on the front but didn't want it to be too overwhelming so I stamped the "just for you" on a strip of white and then cut it to create a small banner.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this Dahlia! Perfect framing, wonderful coloring and such a pretty card.

  2. Just beautiful Ms. Lisa! Love that pop of orange -- I am partial though since orange is one of my favorite colors! Well done my friend!
