Color Throwdown Challenge #454

Hello friends.  Hadn't had a chance to play with my new SU! Daisy Delight set yet, and the colors for this weeks Color Throwdown challenge were perfect!

Here's what I came up with:

Isn't this a FUN little card?!  I embossed the Daisy's in white on kraft cardstock, and then cut them in half and then glued them together to make a fuller half Daisy.  I also used my bone folder to curl some of the Daisy petals to give a bit more definition.  For the centers and the leaves I had to use the new in color Lemon Lime Twist from SU!...much brighter than the green shown in the inspiration photo, but I love the happy feeling it gives this card!  The little Mason jar (SU! from Perfectly Preserved - retired) was embossed in white on vellum.  The little tag is from PTI's Stemmed Statements and the twine is SU!.  The gingham DSP is also PTI.  Here's a closer up view of those happy blooms:

There's still a few days left to play along with this challenge, so check out all the great inspiration from the DT and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
