Friends daisies

Hi!  I just finished this card for the Penny Black At Allsorts challenge over here .  Stop by to check out all the samples, and maybe even enter the challenge!  There are great prizes, all from Penny Black! 
The theme is "A burst of summer color," so I chose bright yellows and pink and orange.  I colored the daisy stamp with Marvy brush markers and spritzed with a fine mist of water, then stamped.  Then I brushed on some gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water, to give the flowers some shimmer.  Added some light images on the flower panel, used an EK Success punch, layered, and embellished with flowers, pearls, and ribbon.
here's the card:
Stamps are all Penny Black:  3628K Windflower, 2652J Dot & Scroll Border, 2653 Deco Border, 1989E Harlequin Border, 3144F Softer & Kinder.  American Crafts Ribbon, Blue Hills Studio pearls, Joanne's flowers.

That's it for tonight.  If you're here for the Technique Tuesday post, just scroll down one for the tri-panel, punched border card.

Blessings and peace,



  1. These colors scream "summer" to me! I've always loved pink, yellow and orange together! Beautiful card, Lynda! I love the way you've placed the sentiment! The water color effect on the flowers is so pretty and the large scalloped edge looks wonderful!

  2. Love your card--love the vibrant summer colors.
