A day for daisies card

Hello again ;-)


I want to share a card today that I created a little while ago to send to a blogging friend in the US. I have heard now that it has arrived safely and can share it now.



The lady I was sending it to, Vera, is on the ADFD (a day for daisies) DT and I had been dying to use this beauty for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity. I kept it simple to let the picture speak and think it works really well. Here is a close-up:




I coloured the image with Copics and mounted on to red card. The flowers and leaves were punched with punches courtesy of my dear friend Lesley (I made the card at her house at our last play day) and the sentiment is by PTI. The embossed frame was done with my Scor-pal. Not much more to say really, it's a fairly simple card... Hope you like it!

Gorgeous card Alex - and the reason the picture speaks so eloquently by itself is your fantabulous colouring!

I was so pleased to have seen this IRL. The photo really doesn't do it justice because although it looks lovely, in reality it is supreme! Hugs, Lesley

Simple but beautiful! The image is a really lovely one and coloured brilliantly. I like the way you've embossed lines around the image too, a lovely Less Is More touch, Alex. CoB
