A Double Challenge with some Fresh Daisies

I recently won this awesome MB Fresh Daisies die from SimonSaysStamp and I've been playing with it and making lots of cards for my stash. I combined 2 challenges to make this card, and I think I'll be making more like this in assorted colors. I used a piece of tan card stock from Bazzill, adding some PTI bitty box basics dsp, and a piece of cream colored textured card stock. The sentiment was done with an Inkadinkado Stamper on a tiny tag punch, and I added a tiny pink gemstone from Pizzazz Aplenty just for fun.
This was done for the CR84FN57 color challenge to use bright pink, tan and neutral. I just love the color combination! It also follows the Freshly Made Sketch 42 made by Jennifer T.
Oops! The CR84FN57 challenge has expired and I can't enter my card there, but oh well - I still like the card!

Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day here with me. Stay cool!!

Oh my goodness, Carol!! I finally got down to my mailbox today and was so excited to get such happy mail!! Thank you so much for sending me this beautiful card. The picture is lovely, but in person, it is exquisite. I truly love it.

And I am thrilled that you have won a couple of times and I will continue to put your name in the hat (literally lol) whenever you play along in my sketch challenge. It's always so nice when someone who visits my blog and makes comments (other than those times where there is blog candy offered) is drawn.

Again, thanks for the beautiful card.
