Fresh Daisies


I'm using the Crooked Stampers CSSC#2 sketch challenge to create this card. I cut a SB petite oval from black textured cardstock, and added a few SSS Fresh daisies die cuts. I die-cut the flowers from snippets of yellow print dsp and colored the bases with a light orange Copic, then glued them on top of the stems. I added some punched ferns with an EK punch, and added 2 butterflies done with Punch-a-Bunch butterfly punches. I added 2 yellow gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty to the butterfly, adding some white Wink of Stella to the black butterfly wings. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley Ltd stamps. I used GinaK Ivory cardstock and used a Lil Inker stitched rectangle to add some stitching to the outside edge.
                                        

I'm also entering this card into the Snippets Playground #167.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day today!

I love those flowers on the black oval. Great idea to cut them from patterned paper and just shade with your markers.

Thanks for playing my sketch challenge!

Oh, fabulous card Carol!! Love the yellow patterned flowers in the black embossed oval, even if I can't open all the image, pheraphs there is a problem with the internet upload.
Love also the stiched frame and the gorgous double butterfly. Very beautiful!

This is so lovely! That black texture oval is scrumptious! A friend sent me one of these stitched rectangles that I wondered what to do with... now I know. You've inspired me!!

I really like the way you used that flower die, Carol. It is very dramatic against the black.
