Skip into Spring with Daisy May


This card sings…. Spring to me.

Hope you have all popped over to Daisy May Digi Stamps to collect your freebie.

This card has been made for a very special person’s birthday, will be putting a name and sentiment on the card later.

Linnie has written on her blog – Fill her basket with your choice of embellies … which I did … flowers, flowers and more flowers … This has given the card a lot of height so I am in the process of making a box that matches the card, will post when done.

Because Daisy May is looking behind her my interpretation of the image was … something falling out of her basket. She has been coloured with both Pro Markers and water colour pencils. Cut her out with a nestie frame (scalloped edge one) then cut out another frame with DP, cut off the scallops and edged around the image. Matted and layered her. Used a MS deep edge punch – floral vine, which at the moment is one of my favourites. Picked a scalloped and a straight stitch for the papers which are all from K & Co, lace flowers and jewelled brad from stash.
