Daisies

Hi everyone! Here's a card I made for Mercy's Sketch and Maki's color challenge on the Timeless Tuesday blog.



Here's a close-up so you can see the funky fold/cut that I gave the card. Not sure I love what I did here, but hey, what's done is done, lol!



See that cool inner glow on my photos? I've always wanted to do this, but I wasn't sure HOW to do it in Photoshop. Well, Amy Sheffer has a post in the MFT Forum on SCS outlining all sorts of photography tips....including how to add this Inner Glow! Thanks again, Amy! You so R-O-C-K!

I think this is a cool, fun and different card!!!

I have photoshop and I don't know how to use it. Always calling my son for help. He's 17. I do my cards in Picasa but, I love this affect.

LOVE daisies, and your card is an inspiration, especially the fold. I can see perforating the side piece to use as a bookmark. Yellow is my favorite color, so this is an inspiration for later (after I'm done with Valentines!)
