Enjoy Today!


Today's card was inspired by the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge #4 by Teresa Kline .

I loved this sketch, but it was a difficult one for me.  I had an idea in mind but I just could not get the balance right. But I think I like the final result. Do you ever have one of those days?????

The yellow panel has been sponged and crimped to give it some detail. 
The dark pink fillagree behind the yellow panel is one of the tags from the Fancy Tags Two (Spellbinders) die. I cut it into 2 pieces and then placed the pieces on either side of the yellow panel.
As you can see, this whole panel was adhered to a white doily.
I wanted to have a daisy on the sentiment to match the daisies on the DP, but I didn't have any! Hmph!
So...I made this daisy with my Cricut Expression and  Mother's Day 2011 cartridge. 
I added a yellow button and sparkled it up with some  Crystal Stickles, (you can never have too much SPARKLE!!!!) And Voila! a Daisy!!
I finished the card with some yellow satin ribbon. Stuck 2 hat pins in the bow
and ta da!!! Done!

I decided to enter this into the Shabby Tea Room Challenge, too.
The challenge - "My Favorite Things"
Well...I used my favorite colors-pink and yellow!
my favorite stamps-Verve! My Cricut Expression
And I love, love , love flowers!
So , I think this card qualifies!

Thanks for looking! And thanks for the comments! I love reading them!
