Hi everyone! Today I wanted to play along with the clean & simple challenge on Splitcoast stampers. Today's challenge we were to create cards using three panels. This technique is simply done by first stamping your image and then dividing it into three equal sections.

I chose to use my upsy daisy stamp set (I'm really going to miss this stamp set once it retires; this is one of my favorite flower stamps). My niece gave me a yellow daisy plant in a yellow and red basket yesterday for Mother's Day (I'm her God mother) and so that was the inspiration for my card today.

I began making my card by first stamping the daisies using daffodil delight ink and then again using early espresso ink. Then I simply cut my panels apart and I began to assemble my card. For my embellishment I decided to use a daffodil delight button with some twine tied in the center. I colored the twine using my early espresso marker.

I used my scallop border punch to punch along the bottom of my early espresso card stock. My sentiment was stamped and then punched using my word window punch. My daisy image panel was placed onto my card using dimensionals and that's about it!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow. I have a really neat card that I will be posting for the Twisted Tuesday challenge. Have a great rest of the day!
