Daisy Card


As you can see I used one of yesterday's toppers on a card today.  This was quite different from the card I had sketched out in my head.  It was a toss up whether to use the guinea pig image from furry friends or one of the Daisy and Friends images I had coloured  - decisions, decisions.

Anyway this image won, and I put the one of the girl laying down on the back - as for the guinea pig image - that went on the insert!  (Me indecisive? nah - just can't make up my mind - so used all of them! LOL!)  Actually as Ellie is into Zentangle the choice of the main topper was really a no-brainer in the end!.

My granddaughter is not a "pink" person, so found this lovely purple card in my stash (think it was some C & C card from Wilkinson's).   Topper was mounted on silver mirri with a holographic ric rac peel-off around it.  Sentiment was on deep purple mirri.  I used my new tonic punch for the faux ribbon, and then ran a couple of the promarkers I used in the image over some flowers from my latest Docrafts  Goody Bag to tone in (they were originally white with pink spots), and finished them off with some little flower gems from my stash.

Hope she likes it - can't believe she is going to be 10 this week!
