Razzleberry Dahlia and Merci

I created this card based on another sketch from the Go To Sketches issue of Papercrafts.  To color this Dahlia I used my Rich Razzleberry ink pad and a blender pen.  That's it!  Hard to believe, huh?  But with my blender pen I was able to get all these different variations of color!  I love it!! 
I used Stickles in the center of my flower.  I also stamped the small dahlia in Pale Plum and more of the large dahlia in Rich Razzleberry.  The sentiment in Rich Razzleberry too. I used my two way glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds to accent some of the petals on the larger dahlias in the background.  Although I think it might be too hard to make out the glitter in this picture.
My  second card today is based on yet another sketch from the Go To Sketches issue.  I used an Eiffle Tower Merci stamp from a set that was for demos only several years back.  I used black and Regal Rose for the alternating images.
The ribbon is PTI and the button is thread with PTI Rustic Twine.  The button's from my stash.   I also used Stickles to go over the small X's on the Eiffel Towers.  Simple, but I so love the simple!

  10. You have some really cute cards displayed. I love the Eiffle Towers one. I didn't realize I was so lucky to have the Spellbinders #4 already. That is great news. Thanks for pointing it out.
