My Garden Daisy

Hello Everyone!!  Today's card is a sneak peek of the brand new My Garden set from JustRite Stampers!!  This is a set of 4 flower centres and borders which will be available from next week!!!  I've also been inspired by my rockin' friend Silke's sketch which is for this week's FTTC49!  Now I LOVE daisies, so I just HAD to use this one!  You know, when I was born Cyclone Daisy was battering the Queensland Coast (my home state) and although I love daisies, thank goodness my parents didn't name me that!!!  :)  When I was married I carried dozens of white and yellow gerbera daisies!  Also, in a couple of weeks, on February 6th, I will be at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks in Nambour on the beautiful Sunshine Coast demonstrating JustRite Stamps!  If you happen to be in the area, stop on by and say hello!!!  :)  Not only is this a beautiful daisy - the sentiment border is wonderful too!  If you want the chance to win this set, pop on over to the JR Blog, but hurry you only have until Midnight Friday (US time)!!!!

I started with a base of Apricot Appeal and layered with white (pierced around the edge), Old Olive and some DCWV DP.  The horizonal panel is more Old Olive punched on one side with the Lazy Days of Summer Fiskars border punch and layered with white embossed with the Swiss Dots EF.  The two vertical pieces are more olive (pierced around the edges) matted with white.  The focal panel is the Daisy and border from JustRite's My Garden, stamped in jet black stazon twice.  I then coloured both daisies and cut one of them and popped it up on top of the other which had been cut using the Large Circle Nestabilities.  I also sponged some olive around the daisy and matted the panel with some more Apricot Appeal, pierced the scallops and popped the whole panel up on foam tape.  To finish I added a few Kaisercraft Chino Pearls to the top corners!

You can find more inspiration and sneak peeks at the JustRite Blog, Angela and Michele Kovack's Blog!!!

And you sang this song...

Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do.
I'm half crazy all for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage.
But you'll look sweet,
Upon the seat,
Of a bicycle made for two.

Nice Card Miss Daisy!!
