Magnolia Big Daisy Card

Hello Dearest Readers,

I hope this post finds each of you having a wonderful weekend. It's a beautiful day today. The sky is a gorgeous azure blue. That's one of the pluses living in the desert.

Our son and daughter-in-law are traveling in Europe. Does a mother ever NOT worry? Anyway, they will be leaving Barcelona and heading into the Basque region. Nevada, where we used to live, has a wonderful Basque population in the northern region of the state. We loved eating at the Basque restaurants when we would travel through northern Nevada. Here is a photo of our darling children:

Isn't that a sweet photo? I hatched the one with the hat! LOL The photo was taken in Barcelona at Paseo Maritimo. Emily, the daughter I never had, is such a wonderful addition to our family. I told her she is the heart of our family. She is amazing. Eventually, they will make their way to Belgium via France. If anyone knows of a good beer tour in Brussels, please let me know! LOL

I have a card to share with you today. I used an older stamp from the 2008 Jingle Jangle Collection. It is called "Big Daisy" and is really a striking stamp. I love the visuals you can get with multiple images. Here it is:

You likey? Me likey, LOL! I did some masking to get the multiple images. I didn't want to clutter the front of the card so that the focal point remained those gorgeous daisies. I made this card with an adult in mind, so I wanted to keep it simple. I simply fell in love with the floral paper! That was the inspiration for this particular card - the paper! LOL It is Echo Park - For the Record. I just love the greens, blues, and yellows found in the flowers. I had some Making Memories yellow that was a perfect match. The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die. I painted over it using Glamor Dust so that it would sparkle. The card shape was created using Nestibilities Grand Die Set. I inked the edges is Dark Moss. The mulberry daisies are from Prima. The sentiment was a gift from my sweet friend, Rosie **mmmwwaahhh**

I hope you got a little inspiration from my card. I'm not a big easel card fan, but I enjoyed this one. I think it was because I really loved the colors! I love bright and cheery!

Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will come back again very soon.
