Good morning!  Today's is Tuesday and that means it's time for another great challenge from the Twisted Tuesday's challenge blog.  This week's challenge is to create a project using flowers.  The twist is that they can't be roses or rosettes.

When we went for dinner at my mother in law's house on Sunday she had purple daisies in her kitchen and I thought they were so pretty so that was the inspiration for my card.

I used my big shot for several elements of my card:  the top note die, daisies, embossed background, embossed flower centers, labels die, and the little leaves sizzlits.  Once I had everything cut and embossed it was just a matter of assembling my card.

One thing I did want to mention is that to make my flowers I cut out two of each size and then using my bone folder I slightly folded over the petals then I placed the daisies together and then added the flower centers.  The flower centers were dry embossed and then I sponged them lightly using so saffron ink. My flowers were placed on my card using dimensionals.

I used the smallest die in the labels collection framelits for my sentiment- I thought this would make a cute Mother's day card.  And just along the bottom of my card my wild wasabi card stock was punched using my scallop border punch and to complete my card I decided to add some white ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge!
