Regarding Dahlias... Again! CCMC261

Yes, another dahlia card!  Funny how much I like it even though I was reticent to buy it! haha!  It fits the sketch for Create with Connie and Mary's Sketch Challenge CCMC261 today quite well!

 The first time I saw this elegant paper in the Venetian Romance package I said it looked like a wedding.  I thought it went so well with the beautiful Dahlia bloom too!  The color scheme is Very Vanilla, Pistachio Pudding and Island Indigo.

The soft curves of the Modern Mosaic embossing folder work well with the pattern in the dsp.  I embossed the Dahlia with White Embossing Powder on Shimmery White cardstock and colored it with my AquaPainter (filled with rubbing alcohol) and ink refills.

The "Mr and Mrs" is from the Label Love set and punched with the Artisan Label Punch.  Pearls are always appropriate for a wedding so I added some small ones to the label and larger ones on the lower right corner of the card.  I hope you enjoy it.

Here is the CCMC261 sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary this week:

So cute how you used the ribbon as an edging and then again on the sentiment. All the elements work so well!
