Daisies


This clean and simple card took longer than it probably should have.  It was just one of those days, I suppose.  I wanted to make another card for the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge, using this picture as our inspiration:

I used (finally) my Sizzix Blossom Party Bigz Die and the Big Shot to crank out all those flowers.  This means I can play in the Mark's Finest Papers challenge:  to use die cuts or punches.  The sentiment panel is from Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies.  A strip of sheer, dotted ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store winds under and through the beautiful curlicues of the tag and attaches with a dab of craft glue on the inside.

In the OTWC inspiration photo collage, there are many golden tones.  I picked up on that with my touches of glitter, courtesy of Martha Stewart, in Florentine Gold.  My Zig Two-Way Glue Pen has a chiseled tip that allows for delicate placement of glue in small areas.
A sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes by Stampin' Up! finishes the tag.

Time for dinner --- I'd better run!  Thanks for joining me.  :)

Happy Stamping,




Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes by SU
Paper:  Garden Green, Soft Suede, Whisper White

Hi Colleen, I'm playing catch up tonight. I love your new heading! The colors are beautiful! Your house looks really scary and your bookcase decor is beautiful. I see why that's your favorite spot! Love the flying witch card, well all your cards, but especially that one. Take care.
