Surrender to Daisies

Hello All,

Welcome to my third guest appearance at Just Us Girls. This type of challenge happens to be one of my favorites... Color challenges. Before I get to the color scheme I want to share my card for today, enjoy!

The other day my husband commented that it smelled different and you know what he was right. That smell, Spring! Everything coming back to life! That is why I wanted to use daisies for this card. They are fresh, new, and the smell is always suggestive to Springtime.

Just Us Girls
Challenge #576- Color Week

Use Yellow, Dark Green, Gray

The daisies are a die cut set from Altenew called
Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set
The slimline card was done to emulate a field of daisies against a gray sky. Let's face it, Spring is not the sunniest time of year. However, I do like the transition from clouds to the sun. 

The die-cut daisies were tedious to assemble but by following the layering guide that comes with the set then you should be all set. Tip: I made the super small pieces into stickers instead of using glue to adhere the bits to the flower. It was much easier and less messy than glue.

Well, that should do it for me!! I want to thank Just Us Girls once again for being such fantastic hosts. I do hope you join their challenge. For me, it was great fun and I am sure it will be for you too. Take care and until next time take care, happy stamping, and stay safe!! 

All the best,

You really showcased my colors this week perfectly Shawna! I love the depth of green you used as it really makes your daisies pop. Love the greeting as well! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Talk about an incredible way to capture the colours of this week's challenge! Your daisies are beautiful! And yes, spring skies do tend to be grey at times, as they are here, today! Love this fabulous slimline!

I absolutely adore this card, Shawna. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers and you've given us a field of them, so bright and sunny looking under the gray sky.
