Daffodil Daisies

I made this card for Splitcoaststamper's Sketch Challenge #332:
This is the sketch:

I made my image panel a little bigger than the sketch...thought it just "fit" better than smaller:)!
I have been making a lot of cards with blue flowers, so opted for daffodil delight with a stamp from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. and a gingham stamp as well as sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  I made it pretty simple...minimal layers...and thought it could use some embellishments, but in the end decided less is more, and that it was ok to have empty spaces!  I masked the flowers and stems and dotted the flower middles with black Enamel Accents.  I LOVE that stuff...in this case, when the centers of the flowers aren't perfectly round and pearls or stick on dots don't fit just right, squirt some Enamel Accents on in the shape you want...and they "look" like pearls or dots...WAY COOL!!!  Used some black twisted burlap twine I purchased on ETSY  and made a tag for my sentiment.  A polka dotted embossing folder, and done:)!!
Things I used:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamp Co. Flower Silhouettes, Papertrey Ink Background Basics Gingham and Floral Frenzy
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Papertrey Ink white, black
Ink: Daffodil Delight, stazon black
Extras: clear embossing powder, burlap twine, black enamel accents, polka dot embossing folder, pop up dots, hole punch
Thanks for taking a look, hope your day is wonderful:)!!

  3. Your card for "Less is More seems to have disappeared with all the problems Blogger has been experiencing over the last couple of days!
