Birthday Hollyhocks

Hi Everyone,,

it has been a while that I made a non DT related card......
This one went to my sister. She deserves a special card, not one out of my stash....


I bought those Impression Obsession Hollyhock dies last year and did not yet use them. Neither did I use this pretty Poppy Stamp stencil, which is even older. I used black gesso for the background, although it is kind of runny and seeped under the stencil. It still looked pretty, so I used it. Added my favorite So Suzy birthday stamp and a strip of patterned paper. i also used a bit of Stickles to glitter up the center of those Hollyhocks.

One very special card for your sister. The beautiful die cut hollyhocks look great over the black silhouette stencilled flowers. Great combination and such a stunning card X

You're quite busy with DT cards which you say are your stash, but I'm sure those are just as worthy a card for someone special...I'm glad you made this special card and it found it's way to our Double Trouble Challenge and pairing up with Pause Dream Enjoy. Your special card is beautiful...the silhouette and black and white strip and the colorful flowers against the kraft background is so complimentary...love it all. I hope you can come back on Monday and see our next fun challenge at Double Trouble and team up with another challenge.
