Books and Daisies

Hello Everyone!!  Today I'm playing along with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, which is an inspiration challenge.  I guess I was inspired by the green pot and the flowers and this is what I ended up with.  :)

I stamped the books and daisies image from Flourishes' From The Desk Of set - love this cute image and such a good size too - in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (G40, G82, G85, BG0000, BG000, G24, G28, Y35, Y38, YR24, E35).  It was cut with Large Rectangle Nestabilities and then I cut a mat of yellow (since I don't own small rectangle nestabilities).  I framed this with Old Olive cut with the Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabilities. The base is constructed of Old Olive, White and Modern Homemaker DP.  Across this I added a piece of white cut with the MS Iron Gate punch and topped with more Modern Homemaker DP.  Across these I've added some White Crochet Lace and popped up my image over the top with foam tape.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from Orchids in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out with Oval Nestabilities.  To finish I added a few Kaisercraft clear rhinestones.

Stamps - From the Desk Of, Orchids (Flourishes)

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
