Pink dahlias in a shadow box

A sort of quick tutorial to the dahlias

I didn't take pictures after this but you just need to stick the stem behind the dahlia whorls and you're good to go. Just assemble some other types of flowers and some leaves, and you can make your own bunch :-)

This is my entry to the Flowers Challenge on Create me Pink :-)

Happy Quilling

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding........:-)
