Dalias in Green

When I saw Mel's post on SCS I knew I had to make a card with the flowers. I printed the pattern on the back of some thin designer paper I had, and cut them out. This flower has 5 layers. I then used one of my cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss the bottom of my card that is 5-1/4 x 5-1/4. Above that, I scored 3 lines with my Score-Pal. I used my sponge dauber to add some Rose Red and Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions. I used a strip of Rose Red Prints DSP and a border punch from Martha's line and adhered it above the lines. Happy Mothers' Day is from All Holidays stamp set. And the brad is my favorite part!!!! It is from K&C Company and is called K-OLOGY Hannah Stitched Beaded Brads.

Love the flower, but you didn't say if it's from a stamp or free-hand cutting. Please, let us know. If it's a stamp, company name please. Thank you.
