Flowers for Daisy: Let's Make Her Day!

When I got out my sheet of "Flowers for Daisy" to trim, I noticed the vase image and verse were the perfect proportions for a bookmark and already lined up, this was so easy to create! I love putting flowers on bookmarks, it is so pretty to have a your ribbon marker double as a stem and I love the idea of tucking away a flower in a book to save for later... :)


After stamping my image and greeting, plus one more daisy on white cardstock, all colored with Copics, I decided I wanted to have the top be an inverted triangle to mirror the one on the table top. I stamped my daisy above my focal point and then trimmed around the flower up to the point in the center.
Then I made a hole through the top with my Cropodile that would be covered by my cut out daisy I glued the white daisy over my tied ribbon and then used one of my little Kelly Pannaci stamp borders on the bottom, filling in the scallops with white gel pen and them trimming around them with scalloped scissors. The white with Summer Sun CS and the daisies are just like a breath of fresh air!
I sent this bookmark to Asela's friend Daisy, you can read more about her and the set here. Would you like to send her some of your own "paper flowers"? Email me for her address, and you will be entered to win a gorgeous pad of 6x6 Designer Paper (doublesided!) from a brand new company we discovered at CHA! (ooh ahh!!) Your card does not have to be made with this set or using flowers, just whatever you would like to share with her to lift her up! I will announce a winner on Wednesday, July 30th on my blog (but feel free to keep senidng cards after that date please!) so please be sure to check back to see who won, I will be posting another special card using the set that day.

Thank you so much for supporting this set and Asela and Daisy, you are making a difference!

PS Jessica is doing her first blog candy, be sure to go check it out, ends Monday!
