  This Pop-up Dahlia is truly intricate and once you die cut it, half of the card nearly made.

I love adding details and gentled colored the petals in light pink and metallic watercolor.

I then added a layer of Rainbow Blots Paper Pad with the Mix & Match Frame.

This die set was super easy to create with. I also stamped the rose background with Rose Tea Stamp Set.

 The sentiment is also from the Rose Tea Stamp Set.

  For the "Lovely Envelope", I added the tiny strip of paper to make the entire die cutting smooth. I love the Inlaid-diecutting.

I used my own watercolor paper for all the foliage. The colors from 24 Watercolor Artist Pan Set
are  so bright and beautiful!

 I left some parts of the die attached and find them beautiful that way.
