This week over at CAS-ual Fridays their challenge is to make a 4x9 card! I've never made a card this big before. I have thought about this all week. Last night I had a dream about walking in a field of daisies. How could I resist making a card with daisies on it? Michele said that we have to embrace the white space and resist filling the entire card up.

I resisted and I love how this came out. Would love to make a slew of them, but at a more normal size!!


Thanks for stopping by. I just love all your comments. Have an awesome day!!
Stamps: There She Goes Clear Stamps (Bloom)
Paper: Bazzill Basics (lilly white & coconut swirl); DCWV (Blossom Song)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; PrismaColour Colored Pencils
Accessories: ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon)

All that white space sings to me! LOL! I LOVE it! Your card is just so pretty!

I am a Denver Native myself! Jealous that you are still there and I am not! I ask my husband everyday if we can move back! One day maybe! Hopefully sooner than later! :)

Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

Hi Theresa :)

Gorgeous card hun, really stylish and eye-catching. All the white space gives me a panic though! :D lol.

Have a great day,

Well I certainly think you did a FINE job of embracing the white space with this beautiful and eye catching card. I love the mix of pink and green with the pop of yellow!
Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

I'm loving the white space - you've perfectly balanced all the elements. I would find that so challenging on a long card!
Love that cute ribbon, too :)

This DID come out well! I really like the patterned ribbon too. It adds visual interest but still allows for the "white space" to shine! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays this week.
