Hi Blog Friends! As an Artist and a Card-marker do you sometimes find inspiration in the beauty around you. Back in the Spring of 2009 when I was laid off from my job, I took to gardening. I couldn't afford much, (still can't even with a job as it pays so much less)so I went to the clearance section and bought Gerber Daisies for less than $2 a pot. Those poor things had no flowers and were on their last leg. But I took them home and planted them just outside my backdoor in a vinette where I have English Ivy on a Trellis and a bird bath. Well those Gerber Daisies are yellow and beautiful this year. Their beauty inspired me to create this card.
Meet Tilda with Cherry Basket. Isn't she sweet. I just love these images. I saw the sketch at the Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge and just had to play along. This delightful paper is from K & Company and is so pretty with the Yellow Gerber Daisies on it and little touches of blue and of course green.
I used the following Supplies:
Spellbinders Dies- Square, Labels 6, Butterfly
Martha Stewart - Double Loop Deep Edge, and Frond Punches
Marvy Punch for the Daisies
Misc: Blue Rhinestones, Blue Rhinestone Flourish from Micheal's, White Glitter Chipboard Flourishes, Lace, Yellow Stickles, Blue Stickles, Crystal Stickles.
This is a picture of the card with the envelope box I created as this card is a little on the thick side.
And this is the inside...of course, with a card decorated so much on the inside it would be kinda thick don't ya think!!! lol Thanks for stopping by today. This card is being sent off to my wonderful Mother for Mother's Day. I am sending more Chocolates too!!!
