Daisy Daisy

Hello there,

Many thanks for all your kind wishes, both for my birthday and on the birth of our new Grandson.  I had a wonderful birthday and I topped up on some totally unnecessary crafty purchases :) You know what it's like don't you!

I'm here today to share a card that I've made for this week's challenge over at Allsorts.  The theme is 'Daisy Daisy.' I've made a DL card for a change and used one of my favourite Time Holtz Dies, along with some Inkylicious stamps which I stamped in Versafine and then fussy cut out as I wanted to give them some dimension. I'm really into Spring colours at the moment and so I've opted for a purple and lemon combination, with just a touch of Pink in the background. On saying that, I'm not sure that purple is a Spring colour but I still like it :)

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 265 and 266
Try it on Tuesday - Anything but Square

Hi Sandra,
yes purple is definitely a spring colour as they use it a lot at Easter with yellows.
Love this wonderful and supberly crafted card.
Your cutting of those daisies is fantastic, and your design is ace.
Love all the purple inking and the ditressing around the edges.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I do like the yellow/orange-purple colourcombination! It looks great with the daisies and dies. Always so perfect to get some crafty presents and so good to get them inky or use them! Hope you have a good and relaxing weekend enjoying all the new in your live my friend :). So special to see how a baby grows to a child...they do that with such big "steps"! Hugs, Gerrina
