Dahlia Thinking of You

When I seen Freshly Made Sketches this week I was stumped for a while. While sleeping last night a Polaroid flashed in my head, and I thought it would work great for their sketch. Looking at their sketch now I see I went fairly out of the box but I still think it fits the sketch enough to submit my card for their challenge. 

I also combined their sketch with Friday's Mashup's challenge of making a Sympathy or Thinking of you Card.

I am been very drawn to the Dahlia Stamp. I hope you like it because I think you will be seeing it a lot more in the next year (or longer, if Stampin' Up doesn't retire it).

To make the Polaroid I cut my Basic Black to 3-1/4" X 3-5/8". I used a square framelit to cut out the centre. My Whisper White cardstock is cut to 3-1/4" X 3-1/4" and glued behind the Polaroid. 
The sentiment was powder embossed using Versamark ink and Whisper White Embossing Powder melted with Stampin' Up's Heat Tool.
