Gerber Daisies for mom

It's Friday, Whohooo!!!! I am excited for the weekend as we have a football game tonight, plans with friends and just a weekend of fun. Now that is what a weekend should be all about! hee hee   Over on the Flourishes Blog today the DT are showing you some favorite creations.  Before I get to my creation we have some exciting news to share with you. The talented and beautiful Julie has been the Flourishes DT Coordinator for a number of years and honestly this woman is amazing. She does so much behind the scenes here at Flourishes and then to the job of  DT Coordinator, she really is super woman. However, Julie would like to pass the baton as they say over to Christine who is now our new DT Coordinator. I think Julie just wants more time to play in her stamp room. hee hee  Christine is fabulous and is the perfect choice to fill the shoes of DT Coordinator. If you know Christine as some of do you would agree with what I told her, she is going to *rock*  the role and I am thrilled to see her shine in this new position with Flourishes. Whohoo!!! Please congratulate Christine with us.
Now onto my creation.... The Gerber Daisies have been on my desk lately creating some cards for friends and DH work girls. I stamped the Gerber Daisies onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.   
Colored with copic collections:




Once colored I carefully trimmed around the flowers as the leaves have lot of angles in between each one. Added dimensionals to the back and set it aside. Two Color Made Easy paper packes were used for this card, True Blue and Rich Browns.


My frame is die cut with the CME True Blue using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die, one of my favorites! Layered a CME Rich Brown layer and then another piece of True Blue that has been textured with swiss dots. Took the white crochet lace and added it to the center along with the Color Made Easy Sunflower Antique gold ribbon for the color. Before I put the daisies down added a few flourishes pearls for bling. Then my flowers and sentiment. Voila! I do love how this turned out.

Be sure to check out the creations from the design team today and see what their favorites are:
  • Amanda Havon
  • Christine Okken
  • Cindy Lawrence
  • Danielle Kennedy
  • Julie Koerber
  • Maki Jones
  • Silke Ledlow
