Golden Daisy Girl

     Second post of today so if you're looking for my Tuesday Throwdown DT post,
 scroll down or click here.

      Good afternoon and I hope your day is going well.  I have a card I want to share with you which has a color combo I don't think I've used before but it's definitely going to be a favorite of mine: pink, yellow and gold.  The image is from ArtbyMiran and I think she's adorable sitting on her summer daisy.  :-D


I took the sketch from The Sweetest Thing
and this time I was pretty literal with it.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers, die cut it with a circle die, and then matted the circle with a doily die cut from Cheery Lynn.  All of the papers, including the doily, came from K & Co.  I really love the pale yellow stripes in the background plaid.  Once each piece was cut, I used a gold paint pen on the edges.  

     The "Birthday Wishes" sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp and I stamped it with gold pigment ink (ColorBox ink pad.)   The flower is made from two layers of petals and I added gold ink to the top layer, then used a gold brad to hold the layers together.  

     Challenges:

     Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
