For the love of Gerbera Daisies

Well, here it is Saturday again. Where do the days and weeks go? It is time for the weekly DIVA sketch challenge. You can check to see what all of the designers have done with DSC 185 by going here.

I really liked this sketch, but when I starting kicking around ideas, I made some changes. I rotated it from a horizontal format to a vertical one. The more I looked at it flipped, I knew I only wanted to use half of the sketch. Here's my card. I used it to showcase a Gerbera Daisy pin I made, and the card will make a beautiful presentation package as well.

For the card~
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Beyond the Garden DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Labels Collection framelits die

For the Flower~
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Big Shot, Daisies #2 die, Antique Brads

I made a dozen of the flowers this week in an assortment of colors~ Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Pretty in Pink, all with Daffodil Delight centers. (I bought a combination pin back/alligator clip at a local craft store and glued the flowers on with Crystal Effects.) I brought them in for my Wednesday morning Bible study brunch. It was the only fat-free, calorie-free "treat" for the day. :-) The ladies loved them!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by! As always, I love to see your comments, so leave a little love today if you have time!
