Picnics of Daisies

Happy Sunday to ya! Here's a card I made with my new Picnics of Daisies stamp...isn't she sweet?!! You can get her at Stamper's Dream. Michelle has a bunch of Stampavie products in her store, both Rachelle Ann Miller and Sarah Kay.



I followed Mojo Sketch #70 for the layout, and went with the colors from this past week's Color Throwdown challenge (brocade blue, real red, and black)...LOVE these colors together! Love those girls over on the Color Throwdown blog too...very talented girls! The main image with the black matting is up on Dimensionals. I used Diamond Glaze to glue down my Dew Drops and added some stickles to her hair bows and the yellow parts of the flowers she's holding. You can get the Stickles and Diamond Glaze at Stamper's Dream as well.

Here's a pic of the inside of the card...sorta the same layout as the front.
