Daisy Daisy from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, I think summer is over here and its so much colder and the wind has already started to blow the leaves off the trees. I'm still feeling summery in my craft room though as I've been using the lovely daisy stamp from Honeysuckle Butterfly, one of this month's new releases from Chocolate Baroque.


I began by creating a distress ink background and overstamped with the daisy in versamark and embossed with a white embossing powder. I stamped the focal image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Graph'It markers. I die cut the image, layering it up over a scalloped oval die cut. I added a bow and a paper daisy and a die cut swirl.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine: anything goes
Cards Galore Encore: Anything goes
Left of Centre: inspired by a song (Daisy Daisy)
Open Minded: Last days of summer
Penny's Paper Crafty: anything goes

Well time for me to go to work, don't you just love Mondays?? 
thanks for popping by today
