Life is Beautiful ....

... Hi! The morning seems to have run away from me! I've been playing in my craft room and have actually managed to complete a card for The Flower Challenge - TFC#13, to use a 'favourite' flower:

Stamps: Altenew - Spring Daisy, Painted Butterflies
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Lemon Lime Twist, Wild Wasabi, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy
Dies: Altenew - Painted Butterflies
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Lemon Lime Twist; Gems

I've used the colours from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#245 - I just love the bold, bright lemon-lime colour! I made the card base from this zingy green and cut a panel of white card slightly smaller to layer on top. I used my MISTI to stamp the flower outline, masked the flower and stamped the leaves. Once I'd done the leaves I finished the flower and added the sentiment. I decided that the card needed a bit more, so I added a couple of bold, beautiful butterflies and lots of little gems. On the inside, I cut a white panel onto which I stamped a sentiment and some more flowers.

I really like this pretty layering daisy from Altenew, it's certainly one of my favourites!
