Happy Flowers

Morning my crafty friends!  I love these flowers, they are really happy flowers.  You just can't help but smile when you see them, can you?  My Mom always had a big pot of Marguerite daisies by the front door when I was growing up so it must be why I love them so much!  This is a really simple card as I have embossed the background with the Elegance embossibility folder (using the opposite side from yesterday's card).  I cut a strip of black card and matted it with white and then a golden yellow as a base for my focal strip of daisies.  I cut six of the daisy from the Floral tag set.  I inked three of them using Scattered Straw distress ink on the petals to use as bases for the other three.  The daisies used on top, I inked the centre only and nipped away all the inner petal pieces leaving the outer ring of each petal.  I used a piece of mounting foam to mount them a top the first set of daisies so the petals showed through creating depth (see close up below).  I wrapped a piece of white edged organza around my card and tied it in to a knot (no bow this time).  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the matching daisy tag.  I inked the sentiment area and the flower with Scattered Straw and Shabby Shutters for the leaves and tied it to my knot with a bit of Bakers Twine.  I added some pearl swirls and pierced the edges for a quick finish.  I hope the daisies are making you smile too!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
wonderful card very bright and cheerful. I have this daisy plant in my back garden, and it always looks good even when there are no daisies on it yet. The lush green leaves are a wonderful green. I was brought up in the town. We lived in a pub which had no garden so my memories of a garden as a child was visiting my grandparents house. Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

These flowers are gorgeous. Living in a flat in Central London we dont see as many flowers as we would like, but we buy them (not quite the same). Thank you for making me smile.

Hope you are feeling at least a little better. How you kept up the blog I'll never know.
