A day for daisies

I've had a lovely start to my days off work, a little gardening and some crafting too. Here are a couple of cards I made this morning.


i've used a gorgeous freebie from 'A Day for Daisies' , coloured with promarkers and then sponged in the sky with Tumbled glass distress ink. The challenge at A Day for Daisies is dots and  stripes so i've picked out 3 bps from K&Co, one with dots, one with stripes and a floral. I've used this weeks sketch from Allsorts for the layout and added some lime ric rac, paper flowers and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft your passion: You've been spotted
Papertake Weekly: spots'n'stripes
Polka doodles: 3 patterned papers
Tuesday Throwdown: polka dots

I don't make many wedding cards but my neighbours daughter is getting married soon so I've made this card for her using Tilda and a bp I was lucky enough to win from Polka Doodles.


The image is coloured with promarkers and has glittery highlight and a microbead necklace and petticoat. For the layout i've used the sketch from Crafty Emma's Challenge. I've added some flowers from WOC, a couple fo Marianne die cuts, a little pink vellum and heart charm and some faux pearls. I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar: Let's Celebrate
Crafty Creations: Red, white and blue and/or a wedding card
Digi Doodle Shop's Best: glitter and glitz
Fab'n'Funky: Here comes the bride

Thanks for visiting, I hope you're having a good start to the Easter break.
