Birthday Day Yellow Daisies

Good afternoon. It's mid-week and hope that so far, yours has been good.

Today's card:


- Hero Arts image stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics; WoStella on the leaves and some of the wreath greenery. Die cut with the Lil Inker circle stax. Popped up on dimensional tape.

- S/B Card Creator Diamond Effects for the green layer. Used the metal shim with this die & it cut very well. No hard places to have to fiddle out.

- Patterned yellow DP was sponged with DI Scattered Straw to create more of a contrast between the green DP.

- MS punched butterfly from a snippet of overspray paper, green rhinestones for body.

- Elizabeth Craft sentiment die.

Pretty easy card, but I think it looks quite cheery & happy with the sunny colors. Hope the recipient (a VIP ) will think so too!

Thanks for popping in to visit. Many big hugs, and enjoy your afternoon.

Indeed, it is very cheery and happy. The wreath is so pretty and I really like that Spellbinder die for your green paper. The card is gorgeous, Mary.

I can tell you since this beautiful card came to my house for my birthday that it is much prettier in real life!!! I think it looks stunning here in the photo, but when you see it in real life you realize just how amazing it really it! I love that daisy wreath, so gorgeous and I love how you colored the flowers Momma Mary. I also love the wink of stella on the leaves, so pretty!! That lattice die cut background is awesome, I love yellow and green and this card is just so cheery and happy feeling. And then there is that cute, cute butter fly with the bling-this winged beautiful finishes off this card so nicely! Oh yes, this gal loves this card!! Thank you for sending this beautiful to me Momma Mary!!! Hugs
