Trio of Definitely Dahlia Cards


This Trio of Definitely Dahlia Cards was inspired by a color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary and a sketch challenge at Sweet Sunday Sketch. I also used the challenge at Use Your Stuff to use Stencils on my project. When I sat down to create a card I was debating way too hard on how to layer the colors and that's why I decided to make a Trio of Definitely Dahlia Cards. I flipped the colors three different directions using the same layout. I love seeing the difference that moving the colors around makes. The colors used include: So Saffron, Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy.

Let me know which card is your favorite arrangement of the challenge colors?
