Paper Daisies

I have had the Stampin' Up! paper daisies since they were first introduced and today is the first time I've used them!  I combined three challenges with this card - the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge; the Just Add Ink challenge to just add pearls and the Stamping 411 sketch challenge.  Here are the challenge details:



For my colors I substituted Whisper White for Sahara Sand.  I sponged color onto the paper daisies and left them for a few minutes to dry before sticking them together with glue dots.  A large pearl in the centre of each flower finished them off nicely.


It wasn't until I was adding the watermark that I realised there was no stamping at all on this card.  But there was lots of scoring!  I diagonally scored the Basic Black layer and scored a frame on the Whisper White layer.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Cardstock:  Basic Black; Basic Gray; Whisper White
Ink:  Daffodil Delight; Basic Black
Accessories:  Paper Daisies; Pearls; Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon

Thanks for looking.

Cheers
Karren
