Seeds of Today

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card using Power Poppy's brand new digi called Seeds of Today!  I just love how sweet and whimsical this is, not to mention.....I LOVE DAISIES!!!  I love white daisies so much I had them for my wedding!  I think it started when I was a little girl when I got a necklace with three white daisies in a row on it and I've loved them ever since.  :)  I also love blue and white so it really was a no brainer which direction this card was heading in!

I've used a base of Marina Mist and layered with white (pierced), more Marina Mist and then some Maja Designs DP called White Daisies (seriously how could I NOT use the paper called White Daisies?? LOL!).  Down the side is a strip of Marina Mist punched with Iron Gate Punch, layered with the reverse side of the DP and then I've added a bit more piercing.  I've printed out the Seeds of Today image onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YG01, G40, G43, G46, E21, E23, E25, E27, E93, E95, E97, E99, W1, Y13, Y17, C1, B0000, B000).  I've cut this with Small Circle Nestabilities, matted with Marina Mist cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and white cut with Lacey Circle Nestabilities and then popped it up on X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.  To finish I've added white pearls to the corners.

Inside I've added a strip of DP and cut the other sentiment from the Seeds of Today digi set into a circle.  I really love how the quote from the main image matches up with the graduate sentiment!

Oh, Kathy, this is gorgeous, and I love the white daisy! I actually started coloring my first image with the soft blue around mine, and I love how yours turned out. Your white daisy really pops, and I love the Marina Mist with this sweet Maja Designs Daisies DP. And what a fabulous layout both inside and out. Just love the border too and of course your piercing! Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I really love it and love this sweet image! Well, you are ready for a special graduate now! Hugs!

Such a pretty thing with this sweet image, Kathy! Love, LOVE the designer paper with it. Perfect! Of course, your coloring rocks. I've got daisies in pots all around the garden. They are so cheerful and the deer have never eaten them, knock on wood. Have a good day!
