Daisy



May and June are heavy on the Birthdays for my family, so today's card is for one of them, my husband's niece, another big 13! I decided to make another cross-over card, I love the way the tag is hidden away in these cards and I adore this image 'Daisy' from Sugar Nellie. I chose lilac and soft green for the colours, although the green has come out a bit strong on the photo. One of these days I might actually take a photo that I'm pleased with!

Image - 'Daisy' - Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers
DPs - 'Back to Basics II' - Dovecraft
Picket fence & leaves - cut using Marianne Creatables dies
Ovals, circle, lacy ovals - cut using Spellbinders dies
Hat pins & pearl buckle - Wild Orchid Crafts
Small gems - Anita's Gem Wheel
Purple card, pearls & ribbon from stash
Flowers punched with a daisy punch (not sure of manufacturer) and the middles were cut using a Sizzix Sizzlits die

Challenges:
'Card & Tag' - Pollycraft
'Special Birthday' - Passion for Promarkers
'Hat pins/charms' - I ♥ Promarkers
'Anything Goes' - CES - Last ever challenge :(
'Happy Birthday' - Joanna Sheen
'Birthday Fun' - Dutch Dare
