Contemporary dogwood flower card

Hi everyone!  I have another fun flower card to share.  I've been into purple lately, so when designing this I reached for the fabulous Deep Lilac cardstock to pair with the awesome Contemporary Circles die set!
The flower on this card is from the Create-a-Flower series of dies (which has 24 flowers in it now!) and is the Dogwood.  I love it and it is super easy to make.  You only have to die cut the pieces once (other flowers require multiple pieces).  Here is a picture.
I lightly sponged some Bubblegum Pink ink onto each petal and bent them slightly over my thumb.  I then glued the petals to the petal base.  I overlapped them at the center to get my petals close enough to touch at the sides.  The stamens are also super easy, just a tiny curve with my embossing tool and done. 
Here is the Contemporary Circles, isn't it the coolest?  It also comes in a Square and Diamonds!!
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.  You can see I added a sequin and pearl to the center.

  1. Very pretty Michelle. Love the simpleness of this. I ended up getting the Diamond shape but dont have the flower, considering it now, not too much fiddling and its really pretty.

  2. Hi Michelle, love this very elegant card. Such a pretty flower die and the contemporary circles die looks great...I'll have to go out and get both now I've seen them in action. Janelle x

  5. Love your card. I just bought that circle die and your card was a perfect inspiration on what I should make with it. I also have the square shape as I think they are cool dies. Thanks again for the inspiration!
