Stampin' Celebration #22

Look at this fun inspiration piece from Stampin' Celebration!  I had fun using it as my inspiration to create this card:

For some reason I wasn't feeling the bee theme, so I went with the bottom left photo as my inspiration.  I used my Flower, Daisies #2 Big Shot die for the flower (two layered on top of each other).  For the center of the flower I started with a 1/2" circle punched from Early Espresso and then daubed it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  Next I added a layer of Crystal Effects.  I know the picture doesn't capture the amazing shimmer of it, so you'll just have to try it for yourself!  

I sponged just the tips of the daisies, as well as around the Daffodil Delight layer and the Crumb Cake card base with Early Espresso ink.  I added the Hemp Twine around the Daffodil Delight layer to add a little more interest, and then stamped the sentiment (from the set Just Believe) with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  

And there you have it!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the other members of the Design Team have been up to this week.

I love this card! The contrast of the white flower on the yellow is gorgeous.
