Today's Technique challenge was to create a flower out of circle punches - using the Dahlia Fold. The fold is very simple once you get the hang of it. And it's a learning process.
Mistake #1: using patterned cardstock - which is really hard to fold.
Mistake #2: Not so much using the scallop circle punch, but folding it in different ways. One of the reasons my flower looks funky.
I chose to use some Tres Jolie dp by My Mind's Eye and I pulled the colors for the rest of my card from that.
I really want to try to make another card later today with regular dp to see the difference.
