Please Don't Pick the Daisies

Please don't pick the Daisies!!! Well, they are pretty so if you must, go ahead. They are right up there with Black Eyed Susan's for me. Both pretty flowers in their simplicity. These flowers are so easy to make. Just punch with a "Marvy" flower punch, gently fold each petal in the middle, layer, and use some yellow stickles for the center.

This product is a desire for me to join in the Tea Party over at SCS. You can read about it here. I started this on Tuesday, but didn't finish it until today. Not that I worked on it all the time. This only took me about an hour and a half, but I have had horrible allergies this year and my asthma is all worked up big time. I finally broke down and did a breathing treatment last night and one this morning and am feeling better. At least I am not wheezing and coughing so much.

My image is from a google search. It is a coloring page. I printed it and colored with copic markers. It was perfect for the Tea Party theme. Thank you for stopping by to view this card. It is going to be winging it's way to "Destination Station" to Idaho to a lady who loves cats and has had many health problems of late. I hope it will brighten her day.

Recipe:
Spellbinders - Parisian Motif and Circle Nestibilities
Martha Stewart Punches - Daisy Punch Around the Page, Branch Punch, and Large Butterfly Punch

Accessories: Both Crystal and Yellow Stickles, Antique Linen Distress Ink, Plastic Fibers that I got in a yard sale for the curly Q's on the flowers.
