Fred She Said Gerber Daisy in a Jar

Hi everyone. This is a card I made for a special friend's birthday. I have been inspired by the Gerber Daisies that have been growing in my garden. This image is from the Fred She Said Digital Collection. It is called Gerber Daisies in a jar and your can purchase it here.
This is a pre-colored digital image that makes putting together a card a breeze.

Here is a peek at the inside of my card. I carried the theme of the Gerber Daisies throughout. I tried to leave more open spaces on this card as this paper is so beautiful.

The recipe is as follows:

Paper-K & Company
Martha Stewart-Ribbon Loop Punch Around the Page
Spellbinders: Scalloped Square Nesties, Scalloped Oval Nesties, Oval Nesties, Floral Doily Accents
Punch-Daisy Flowers
Miscellaneous-Ribbon, Pearls, Stickles, rhinestones
Sentiment- Mark's Finest Papers

Thanks so much for taking a moment to come to visit me. We are having a busy week. Graduation is Friday!!!
