FSS - Daisies and Lady Bugs
Today I played with one of the new pre-colored images from Fred She Said called Daisies and LadyBugs. Oh my gosh! I had so much fun with this, that I have two more cards in the works with this set. I decided to make an Easel Card with this one. All of the Dasies and Lady Bugs were fussy cut and mounted with foam tape.
I got the inspirational sketch for this card from the Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challenge Blog. I completely changed the card though becasue I made the mistake of finding a FSS pre-colored image I wanted to use and designing the card before printing the image. I'm trying to use up some older papers. Well, when I printed out the image I wanted, it really didn't go with the paper. Since I had the card all Hand Stitched already, I laid some of the daisies, which I also printed out at the same time, on the paper and liked it. I probably wouldn't have used this paper with the daisies, but now that it's finished, I really like it together. Amazing how accidents have a way of working out.
The papers are from a retired paper pack from Close to my Heart. All the pearls are also from CTMH.
The "Thinking of you" is from a NEW CTMH stamp set called Casual Expressions.
The Hand Stitching was all done with matching Embroidery Floss to match the Smoothie Cardstock.
