Daisies 2 Die revisited

Well…not really revisited…actually this was the first card I made when I purchased the Daisies die.  I had been holding it wanting to put some type of greeting on it, but I think I’ll just wait until I actually need something, then add a greeting.  But, I’m scraping the bottom of the pictures of things I have ready to blog, so I need to get some cards photographed this week.  Guess I need to get stamping, too!  I’ve been creating, but they are things for publication and contests so I can’t show them here!

This card is a combination of textures!  I first started with a bright background base card of Pixie Pink.  Then I used the Texturz Kit #4 on the background Taken with Teal (It is really showing off color here), adding some ink direct to paper to highlight the diamonds on the texture, and I rolled the upper right corner down slightly.  The Daisies are diecut from So Saffron cardstock and I rubbed some Pixie Pink on the petals to make them two-toned!  I layered three of the largest flowers, then one each of the medium and small diecuts.  I curled the petals back, so they look nice and fluffy.  In the center I placed a new JUMBO Very Vanilla brad.  The leaves are punched with the Small Oval in Old Olive and sponged with Chocolate Chip on the edges.  I added two panels…one in Old Olive and one in Pixie Pink on the front of the Taken with Teal layer for some background color to tie everything together.  And, finally, a trio of 1/4 circles on the right side.  I like it!

Wow…it is SNOWING here!  Hope our flowering trees and bushes aren’t hurt by the cold weather…they are just starting to bud out!  Where did SPRING go?
