Embossed Card With A Dahlia And Sequins

A foiled paper dahlia and a scattering of sequins decorate this embossed card. Never one to shy away from too much shine, I let the layers add up. Strips of lace and a quote from Canvas Corp Brands paper are complimented by a whimsical, doodled border.
~ I'd Rather Wear Flowers ~
Most of my crafty time falls on the weekend. When the end of the month falls on the weekend I have to struggle to find challenges that are current. This time my search was rewarded with a sketch and a supply challenge. 
I participated with the center, horizontal row.
The sketch is by Julee Tilman of Viva la Verve Sketches.
My first step was to dry emboss a 4x6 of Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from Rinea with a leaf embossing folder. 
 The flower layers were next. I used a die from Amazon as well as Blush and Jade Starstruck Foiled Paper from Rinea.
  A hand doodled border in periwinkle ink added a touch of whimsy.
 Strips of lace give the assembled dahlia and quote card a place to line up.
 The sequins are a mix of green, white and grey.
This card is also my entry for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #523 Add A Quote!
The Paper Girls Challenge is asking crafters to use dry or heat embossing on their projects and to link up for Challenge # 148.
