Gelli Plate Dahlias

Evening Everyone,
Now I definitely know why I stay indoors on my days off.
I walked down to the garage to get some milk and found myself being asked all sorts questions and ended up sorting things out for several people. I wouldn't mind, BUT IT'S MY DAY OFF !!
Oh well, at least I managed to get a few more things sorted out at home.
This card was made using another of my holiday purchases. It is a fabulous stamp set by Stampendous CFS6053 Moray Dahlia.
The background is actually a piece of copy paper that I used to remove some of the acrylic paint when I was playing with the Gelli Plate. I rather liked what was there, and so not wanting to waste anything I added some stamping and Distress Inks.
I coloured the Dahlia image using Distress inks and then cut them out before layering them on to the card using silicon.
I added some Treasure Gold to the edges of the purple cardstock, and also the sentiment.
I tend to think of these as more of a summer flower, but perhaps Dorothy will  allow me a little latitude for the Woodware Challenge. They might not be Spring flowers, but they are flowers after all lol.
