Daisy Birthday

Happy Wednesday friends! Mindy visiting with you today, with my card for this week's #95 Colors and Patterns challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.

My card, Daisy Birthday, is inspired by the beautiful colors included in this week's inspiration photo. The challenge, using Colors and Patterns, is a fairly simple concept to achieve. I hope you will all create a card for this challenge, and submit it for a chance at a wonderful prize!

Now on with my submission! I started by making a patterned background with the Cascading Ferns Background stamp by JustRite Stampers on my card base. Note - An easy way to apply big stamps to paper? Try the Mega Mount. It is a 6" x 6" slightly curved acrylic block with a handle.

I then die cut the elegant scroll background with the Fleur de Elegance die from Spellbinders, and adhered it to the card base with Joy! Large Foam Pads.

Next, I stamped the Daisies stamp set from Stacy Stamps  on watercolor paper, both the single flower and the background flowers. I colored the blooms with Distressed Ink Markers from Tim Holtz, in both Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade. I cut the background stamp in an oval, and fussy cut the single daisy, so that I could pop it up with the foam tape. A birthday banner stamp from my stash was used to finish my card.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation, and will join us in our weekly challenge fun!
