Simon Says Use Your Dies or Punches

I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week which is to use your dies and/or punches. I'm using 2  Simon Says Stamp dies - the hexagon border, and the fresh daisies,  along with some black, white, and green galore cardstock. The sentiment was done with an Inkadinkado stamper and was cut with a jewel tag punch, and adhered with a black pearl. I placed the daisies on a SB oval die cut and popped it up on foam tape, then added some black ribbon. Yes, interchanging the little hexagons is time consuming, but I find that very relaxing, which is why I do it. Working out the design I want to do with the different colors is the difficult part. I die cut the daises with all 3 colors and interchanged the cardstock for those as well, just so it would tie in with the colorful border below.

I think you should check out the details for this challenge because this is something you won't want to miss! Click here for all the details!

Make it a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

I love the look of the daisy die! You've been quite busy creating while I was off floating on the river down the Grand Canyon... Hopefully I'll get all caught up around the house this weekend and will be back to play mode next week! {smile}

Carol, I thought I had commented on this gorgeous card...apparently not as my mugshot and comment aren't there. ha

I love, love your flower and those hexagons are great. I have to say it would probably not relax me...I tend to stress out pretty quick.
