Daisy Daisy

Good morning folks, hope you're enjoying the long weekend and welcome to our new month of challenges at Make My Monday which have been chosen by Suzi B with the theme of Floral and this week we would like to see your creations with White Flowers as a feature.
I chose daisies as we have these in the garden at the moment peeping up in the lawn and I love seeing them there as they brighten it up so much.

I decided to make a bright background as we definitely need something cheery with the horrible cold weather we have at the moment - my winter woollies are back on!
I made my background paper by applying yellow shades of VersaColor cube inks direct to paper on white linen card and then stamped on the lovely daisy by B Line Designs with VersaFine Spanish Moss ink, stamping once on scrap paper first for a muted effect. I then added more yellow ink around the edges and added the paper to a kraft card blank.
I stamped the daisies on white card and embossed them with gold powder then cut them out. I made a border of kraft card trimmed with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch and added this with some crochet lace.
I die cut a circle of kraft card and embossed this with the Cuttlebug polka dots folder and added to the card with a doily and woodcut butterfly. I finished off with an Anitas sentiment die cut to a circle.

The Design Team have made some fabulous inspiration for you so do hop on over for a peep.

Challenges for my card:
Amusing Challenges - Fussy Cut
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan - Nature
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Flower Power
Do You Stack Up - Circles
Little Miss Muffet Challenge - May Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio - Flowers

Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
