Fun with Crazy Daisy Papers

Hello and welcome back! Just wanted to show you a couple fun ideas for the "Crazy Daisy" digital papers today, sorry it has taken me so long! Of course you can use the full sheets or quarter sheets for paper piecing or background mats, but here are a couple maybe not so obvious things you can do with the different colored papers, since they have the same patterns on each, to give you some new looks. I started cutting out the continuous flower border that run though the middle of the pattern at a diagonal. I wen corner to corner so I can use that larger triangular piece at top right.
Here I've glued it on OVER the version of this same print, see how it lines up just like you are paper piecing.
And here is a simple card with that mat, I love this two tone look! I added a button and little popped up circle punched sentiment (from Garden Silhouettes)
And finally I used that border I trimmed out (from the first pic) to go across a Pure Luxury Lemon Drop mat. Card also uses Pure Luxury Little Boy Blue for the greeting (to bring out the blue on the daisies centers) Black Onyx, and Red Hot.
Hope this inspires, have a beautiful day!
