Daisy Day


Today's SCS teapot inspiration was also combined with the color challenge. At first I thought I didn't have any daisy images so probably wouldn't be able to play. And then I began to think Say What??? If I can't come up with something that looks like a daisy out of this room full of stamping stuff, something is wrong. Now I can't think of anything but daisies and all of the things I own that would absolutely work. Hopefully I will get a few of these ideas on to paper to share with you.
This is my first thought from just looking at what was on my desk (the Something Sweet set and sweet treat cups). I filled the cup with all of the yellow Reese's Pieces and ate the rest. I used the handle from the baby rattle stamp as the petals, embossed in white. The rest of the card uses today's colors of Banana, Olive, and Ballet Blue along with some retired designer paper and the ladybug from Because of You.

Fab build of the daisy, nice that you applied creativity of a different order to this task... PS I would have eaten all of the Reese's if they were anywhere near me, finding those in Australia is like finding hen's teeth... and when you do find them they are like $4...
