Daisies and Forget Me Nots

This morning on the drive to the supermarket, I was pleased to see the roadside verges teeming with ox-eye daisies, a flower that I always feel marks the start of the transition from spring to summer. So of course I had to come home and make a card to celebrate them!

I'd been sorting through some old craft magazines and found these pretty daisy and forget me not papers in an old Making Cards special. I thought they'd work perfectly with this floral stamp, which can really be almost any flower you want it to be, depending on how it is coloured. It's an unmounted stamp, one of my oldest  so it must be getting on for 25 years old, and I've used it dozens of times over the years - I'm sure you can see why I love it so much.

Here I have stamped it in black Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear powder, then coloured with Promarkers. I made the card up according to the sketch at Little Red Wagon, with a sentiment stamped on the background card and some tiny buttons to echo the daisy centres.

I am sharing this with

WOW!! I'm amazed at how you matched the beautiful pattern paper with this lovely and sweet image, that looks so gorgeous.
Love how you die cut this flower, leaving that little one outside the frame, this is a fabulous technique.
Thank you for sharing at the FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again next time.
