Dhalia Flower Fold...



This is the result of a layout challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com (SC167) and the amazing flower fold is from a tutorial by Donna Moore. The flower petals are made with some of the SU double-sided, Designer Papers (paper featured was given to me.. it is from the USA : ( but any of the SU papers will work) and is made from circles punched out with the 1 3/8" punch. Each circle is folded to make a petal shape and then mounted to form the flower.


I've used Blush Blossom for the card blank, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery for the toppers and my Stampin-Around Jumbo Wheel with Leaves a'la Carte in Mellow Moss. The pretty in the centre of the flower is a Circle Rhinestone Brad.
The sentiment is from the Cheer & Wishes stamp set (pg 63) and for £16.95 you get a set of 6 stamps which just about cover every occasion throughout the year... A great investment.

Here's the original Sketch Challenge...


Why not try this layout for yourselves... Would work for a scrapbook page too!

Let me know what results you get...

Thanks for looking,

Enjoy...
