Stitching Daisies

Here's another card I made for the DTGD challenges - it actually covers FOUR!!  I've had a blast joining in the challenges this last week and a half and some of them really got me out of my comfort zone!!

I started this card with Very Vanilla and layered with Aqua Bazzill and some Material Girl DSP that I sewed a border around using my sewing machine (and shock, horror - it was actually straight!!!  Wonders will never cease!!!).  My big feature circle was made with two layers of Very Vanilla cut with Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities and then I pierced the scallops on top.  Across the middle I added some aqua Bazzill and punched the bottom with Lace Border Punch and topped with some ivory satin ribbon.  To the right I added an aqua circle and then popped up the daisies (from JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms stamp set) on top.  (The daisies were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics - E50, E51, Y21, Y35, G40, G82, BG11, BG15.)  I then framed it by cutting out a frame using the Label 13 Nestabilities and popping it up on foam tape.  To finish I added a big bow to the side and some Blush Pearls to the corners.


Stamps - Beautiful Blossoms (JustRite) 
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Very Vanilla, Aqua Bazzill, Cosmo Cricket Material Girl DSP 
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Label 13, Large Circle, Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Lace Border Punch, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape. 

Don't forget there is a new challenge happening on the CopicOz Blog in a few hours and there is a prize of a pack of X-press It Blending Card and a 24 Copic Wallet just waiting for one lucky participant!!  Hope to see you playing along!!!

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Mission accomplished if they got you out of your comfort zone, the next comfort zone challenge is to not use any blue for a month!

I DARE YOU!!

This is a fab card apart from that... I love the framing, and the little sky behind the flowers, and the framing, and the big space made by the overlapping scallops, and the stitching is the best you have ever done!

I love this Kathy. The colours are beautiful and you've made your image leap out, so to speak, by using the brighter blue. Fantastic.
