Dotted Dahlias - SSS49

Hello my friends! Time for the Saturday Sketch from The Sweet Stop.  I think I was cold and tired, but I had a hard time working on this one. . . many card casualties are on my desk!  In the end I turned to my brand new Dahlias set from Papertrey Ink with the matching dies - brilliant!!  I love that I didn't have to take the time to cut the flower out, it was just sooooo easy!!  Do you love orange? I do!  I think it's such a happy color and I really love this polka dotted orange paper.  The pop of green makes it interesting too! 

It's hard to see in the photo but the black panel is embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  For the sentiment I die cut another dahlia but didn't stamp the flower, I just added some ink to the edges - kinda neat!

Please take some time to visit The Sweet Stop blog, you can see today's sketch as well as the other cards from Sugar Babies!
