"April Showers Bring May Flowers" Card - H2H Challenge
The challenge this week on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog is to create something with the theme “April showers bring May flowers.” What a fun theme! I just had to create a card with some daisies. Do you remember what Meg Ryan says about daisies in the movie You’ve Got Mail? She says, “Don’t you think that daisies are the friendliest flower?” I agree. I love daisies. They are a friendly flower indeed and they make me so happy!
I used the Enjoy Every Moment stamp set to make my card. I stamped the flowers on two pieces of White Daisy (appropriate name) cardstock. Then I sponged some Heavenly Blue ink on top of one of the pieces of CS and colored the leaves in with a Sweet Leaf Marker. I colored the center of the flowers with a Sunflower Marker on the other stamped image and then cut out the flowers using my Micro-Tip Scissors. (Yes, it took a long time, but it was worth it.) I adhered the cut out flowers on top of the stamped image with some 3-D Foam Tape. Then I matted the image with some Sunflower CS and tied a piece of organdy ribbon around it. I used the Fill in the Blank set to stamp the sentiment on a tiny tag and attached it to the ribbon.
I used my polka dot embossing folder with my Cuttlebug to add some texture to the background to finish off my “happy” card.
