Autumn Dahlia Card

 Hei, muistutus We Love Stamping,  lokakuun korttihaasteesta " syksyn värit"! Tervetuloa, vielä ehdit  mukaan! Mallikortissa uusi leimasimeni ensi käytössä. Tänä kesänä pihallani kasvoi n. 10 erilaista Dahlia- lajiketta, siinä syy miksi halusin tämän leimasimen tilata Saksasta.

Mid month posting, to remind you about  We Love Stamping October Challenge with beautiful " Autumn Colours". You still got time to make an entry with stamping in focus.

I had about 10 different Dahlia's, some of them multiple this summer at my garden. From the little ones to the big Cafe au Lait with about 20 cm circle gorgeous flowers. Today I have lifted the huge rhizomes from the ground for winter storage. That's the story why I wanted this "Dahlia" stamp set, this is the first trial with autumn colours.

DT Card Info:
Stamp set: Create A Smile ( Germany)
Mediums: Archival Ink green, Kuretake Zigs, background with stencil and DOxides
Die Cut sentiment: " Congrats" Korttipaja FI
