Dare to Get Dirty - Coneflower Thanks So Much

Made for the Dare to Get Dirty Black and White and Red All Over challenge. We were to make a black and white card with just a touch of red. I've CASEd the design from a set of fab cards I saw in 2007 made by Flaxychick in the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen gallery. I've also borrowed the layout from a card we made at one of Joanne's Stamper's Ten Make and Take evenings.

I stamped the petals on a page from a gardening magazine and stuck them to white card before trimming them. I've glued the points under the cone flat but I've popped the bottom of the petals up with 3d foam pads.

The sentiment frame is popped up also. To finish off the card I added Pebbles Inc. Black Candy Dots to the card corners.
