Vintage Daisy

Hello there I hope you’re having a great week, I have been so busy at work lately and I find I am worn out by the time I get home, but is nearly weekend again so onwards and upwards.
I have a few friends who are experiencing a bit of a tough time right now and I needed to make some sweet cards to brighten their day.
I am still working on the vintage and layering style and I had another go.
I have used a vanilla card blank and layered some Newsprint designer paper. Next I brayered some so saffron ink over the blank and the paper, I find that the quickest way to add a bit of shading to anything big or small is with the brayer. The crumb cake layer was embossed on the Big Shot. Next I cut some daisies from Pink Pirouette card and edged them in pretty in pink ink. The butterfly from Strength and Hope was stamped in black, cut out then positioned on the scrunched flower. Bling, I added some bling of course then stamped a decorative frame in Baja breeze and punched out. The sentiment from Sincere Salutations was stamped and punched with the large oval. I didn’t stop there though, oh no!! LOL I cut some swirls and added some crumb cake seam binding which ended up being ruffled.

And then I called it quits, above a closer view of the main group, I really like this pink is nice and very subtle. I hope the girls enjoyed my card and I hope you did to :).
Right off  I got o bed now do come back soon as I am launching a new Christmas Card Club this year and you might be interested.
