Gerbera Daisies

Good Morning All - I tried posting this last night, but blogger decided it didn't want to play!!

For the past couple of years I have watched the wonderful design team at Flourishes make some amazing cards. I bought some of their stamps and they have been sitting in my basket for two years. I decided to pull out the Gerbera Daisies set and take part of their Timeless Tuesday Challenge #124. I had such a great time coloring these daisies - I can't believe that I let them gather dust.

I am also entering my card into the Our Creative Corner Your Style challenge. They want you to answer, "What is your style?" I thought about that and since I began posting cards two years ago I see my style has changed. My favorite images would be flowers because I love coloring them. I'm finding that I love to add bows (my sister tells me that not all cards need bows) but I think they are so fun to make. I think my style comes with my mood, but if I had to name one style it would be elegant.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my card.

Beautiful job coloring these Daisies. I actually just got this set and haven't inked it up yet. I think all cards need bows, it makes them look pretty. :)

Thanks for playing FTTC.

I don't know what my favourite style of card would be either, but I'd have to agree, flowers are my FAV things to color. You did a beautiful job with these daisies Theresa. I'm so glad you pulled out your FLLC stamps! They are such beauties!

My sis tells me I'm loving bling too much - good thing addiction to an embellishment or two doesn't hurt anyone, right? lol
That ribbon is gorgeous - you captured the shine & iridescence so well in your photo. Love that lace trim peeking out, and the way the daisies are jumping off the card. {happy sigh!}

Kristin said...

First, your card is gorgeous! The flowers are perfection! Second, bows are the perfect addition - don't be swayed... Sorry it took me so long to comment, I've been having major problems with Blogger...Thanks for playing with us at the OCC! Good luck with the DT call!
