Daisy Delight

I've had a break from making cards - and then a break from making them in response to challenges - but here I am again. There's not a whole lot of stamping on this card, but as I was responding to Retro Rubber's latest challenge (#84, a lovely spring image), the stamps are all from at least a year ago - the daisy from Grateful Bunch (2016 - 2017 catalogue), the sentiment from Crazy about You (2016 - 2017) and the grass from Sheltering Trees (2015-2016).
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - #267 - for the layout. I sponged some clouds to begin, and then added the die cut ones for impact.
The card:

Made using:
Stampin' Up ink: (Soft Sky, Cucumber Crush, Lost Lagoon, Rose Red); paper (Shimmery White, Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky), stamps (Grateful Bunch, Crazy about You and  Sheltering Trees, watercolour pencils (M.elon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry) sparkly dot thingies (forgotten their name!) and dies (Up and Away)


  1. Beautiful take on the challenges, love your sweet Spring scene with that little flower waiting for a bit of Spring Showers, just lovely.
    Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, hope you play again soon.

  2. Oh, what a pretty card! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  3. That's a very soothing colour combination. Those die cut clouds are lovely but the scene-stealer for me is those few blades of grass grounding the very pretty daisy. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week.

  4. Aw, that lonely little flower sure is a sign of Spring here in Michigan! Love your pretty little Spring scene! Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you can join us again soon.

  5. SO sweet and your single little flower and the clouds above! Great idea! Thanks for playing with our Retro Rubber challenge this week!

  6. Cute Spring design! Love the CAS look of your card. Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber Challenge blog!

  7. I love the clouds, they really bring the card to life. I wish it was spring here in NYC.. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
