Regarding Dahlias, HSSSC164

There's an interesting sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments that I thought I would try... My Regarding Dahlias set was still on my desk which gave me an idea for this challenge.

For my "deconstructed" Dahlia, I first punched Blushing Bride cardstock out with the Hexagon Punch then using temporary adhesive, adhered the hexagons to a sheet of copy paper.  Next I stamped them with the Dahlia blossom using Calypso Coral ink.

Then I arranged them onto a layer of Coastal Cabana (LOVE this color!) that had been embossed with the Polka Dot TIEF and Big Shot, then adhered them with Mono Multi liquid glue.

The greeting is from Loving Thoughts set, layered on Baked Brown Sugar cardstock which has the ends treated with the Ticket Punch and the gorgeous Ruffled Trim in the same color added along the bottom.  Linen thread was tied in a bow and also anchors the sentiment tag.  I sprinkled several tiny flowers around, centered them with Pearls and added three small Pearls to the tag (all the Pearls were tinted with a pink Sharpie marker).

Here is the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments:
