Purple Dahlias

Piyanki here today!

A big welcome to all. Today I have some freshly-picked dahlias from Susan’s Garden for you, resting on a watercolor background. Dahlias grow in so many colors.

Designed to make it easy for you to succeed, they include scored lines to help you shape the petals and leaves.

Purple Iris by the Sea

Miss You – Garden Notes Dahlia Card

June 27, 2017

Today I bring to you a lovely hand-crafted card that is a unique way to send a heartfelt message.

I have used the dahlia flower as the central theme. The dahlia is a symbol of inner strength, creativity and standing strong in your sacred values. Dahlia flowers also symbolize a commitment and bond that lasts forever, just like the bond of friendship with the one for whom you are creating this special project.
