Multiple challenges this week

Our challenge on Creative Belli is vellum this week.  I cut the doily and center circle out of vellum.  The challenge is a doily on Our Daily Bread Design and I used their gorgeous Dahlia stamp for this card.  I'm also entering this in the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to choose three.  I used a popped up image, button and ribbon to make the flower.  The pretty background on this card is a cuttlebug damask folder and I sponged some color over it after embossing it. The dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.    Added a little bling on the corners and that finished the card.
