Daisy, Daisy

Happy Saturday to all.  Today I have a bright and, hopefully, cheerful card for you.  What a surprise; I've used two challenges for this card.  One is Stampin' Royalty Challenge #108 and the second is Freshly Made Sketches #19.  Makes me want to get rid of this non-winter and enjoy some warm sunshine.
I started with a Whisper White card stock base.  Another piece of Whisper White card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder as was a small strip of the white card stock.  Using the 1" Circle punch, I punched out circles from the Flirtatious designer paper.  These were attached to the back of a strip of Pacific Point card stock.  After
adding the small strip of embossed white card stock, I attached this to the card front.  With the Big Shot, the Flower Daisies #2 die and Daffodil Delight card stock, I cut out three sets of the daisies.  All the petals were sponged with Daffodil Delight ink.  For the big daisy I attached two of the largest daisy and one each of the other two sizes to each other.  A circle of Chocolate Chip card stock was added to the center.  Crystal Effects was added to the center.  I decided to not add brads because of the heavy embossing on the card front so I made a smaller daisy with two of the smallest die cuts.  A Chocolate Chip center was added to this one as well as Crystal Effects.  Both daisies were added to the card with dimensionals.  I hope the daisies help remind you that Spring is on the way.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend; find some time for fun and creativity.
