Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well I hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday and are now gearing up for this weeks theme and this time its themed

Flower Power

and although at one time I would add flowers to my cards willy nilly these days because of the price of posting Ive had to resort to creating flat ones and I hope that the ones I have added to my own card wont cause to much of a problem on hubby's wallet when posting I don't think it should.

And now to show you the card I created I hope you like it


This little lady is titled "Daises in Paradise" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to cut her out and then cut it out with one of Sue Wilson's square dies, and used a larger one and some pink card to cut out the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and was then stamped and using a smaller die from the same Sue Wilson set I then cut it out and placed it on a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card the backing paper is also from "Daises in Paradise" and you will find it here, on top of this I placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
The Daises are actually a set of punches that I used to create 3 daises and layered them up and in the center I have used some gold glitter and then placed them around my image in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used some of the same gold glitter on the actual image and on the wings and toadstools I used some glitter to make them stand out.
