Fun With Daisies

We had some much needed rain this morning.  It was thundering and the rain came in buckets.  What does that have to do with this post?  Well, our walk was much shorter, and that gave me time to get into the craft room. Hubby just left for golf and I have the house to myself.  I am going to post this card and it will be the last for awhile as I am closing up my craft room and going on VACATION!

Here is the card that I made for the Double D Challenge  Use Neutrals
and Simon Says Wednesday   Make for the Border

Ingredients:  Altenew Spring Daisy stamp
                   GKD White and Kraft card stock
                   GKD White, Kraft and Warm Cocoa inks
                   Striped vellum from Papertrey Ink  Sponged with Warm Cocoa ink under the flowers
                   Swiss dot embossing folder with Warm Cocoa ink
                   Lil Inker stitched rectangles and DieNamics Sentiment dies
                   Glossy accents on the sentiment, white gel pen
OK, that is about all I got, except for a big Thank You for leaving a comment.

This design is perfect, I love all of your warm tones and that stitched border and the added Swiss Dots texture. This is just one heck of a creation....going out with a BANG for sure! Happy Vacation...I'll be right behind you, so to speak! xo~
