Don't Dahlia Around.....

     A friend and I had a little friendly 'throw down' this past weekend.  She challenged me to find a card I have 'pinned' and use it for inspiration to make my own.  The biggest challenge there was not getting distracted as I went through the many I have pinned for inspiration.  There was one (here) however that stood out.  I originally pinned it because I liked the way it opened....a square card, but the flower is the top layer underwhich the sentiment is placed.
     Just that day I had used the last of the gift card my DH gave me at Christmas to Michael's and purchased this Jumbo Dahlia.  It is a little larger than the inspiration flower, but it worked just fine for me and I will be making more of these in different colors.  The overall card is 5.25 x 5.25 - I had to use my Grand Nestabilities and circle cutter for the layers.  The flower is on pop ups on top of the scalloped layer.  I am going to enter this in the challenge at Oozak since it is colored with my Copics - R81, R83, R85, R43.

     I have to tell you I am really excited.....the Intermediate Copic Certification class is being held in Georgia in April.  Since getting my certification in Missouri before moving I have been impatiently waiting for the second class to be close enough to take.  Even more exciting is I let a friend on Splitcoast Stampers know about it (its being held in her area, an hour from me)....we have been trying to meet for many months.  Turns out she has been waiting for the class as well and jumped on the opportunity to sign up....not only do we get to meet, but we get to take the class together. Can't wait.
