Regarding Dahlias Convention Technique Swap

Today I am sharing a card I made for Sarah Naber's Technique Swap at the 2014 Stampin Up! Convention.  My technique was Emboss Resist.

I loved the way the flower turned out.  I have been a bit intimidated by this stamp, not really knowing what to do with it, but this was an easy technique.  I heat embossed the dahlia using White Embossing Powder, then used a sponge dauber with So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral ink to color it in.  I fussy cut the flower out and popped it up with dimensionals.

I kept the inside of the card pretty simple:

Here is my recipe:
