Gerbera daisy

I would like to thank each of you for stopping by!! You will never know how much I appreciate you, it really means so much to me that you not only stop by- but leave the most encouraging comments. Love and Blessings to each of you!!

Here is today's card-this one is going to a friend that is going through some very tough trials right now.

I used a a quick coloring technique- you use an ink foam applicator and color the entire image using a circular motion. Then you shade the edges with a darker color, or two. LOL The center of the daisy was stippled using a 1/2" circle punch negative. Very quick because only the spot you want to color is left open.

A closer look at the daisy. Oh how I wish you could see the shimmer!! I used Pearl Glimmer Mist on the flower once it was all cut out. Oh so pretty!! This is the first time I had used the Glimmer Mist- and after one use I am HOOKED!!
I hadn't used my dew drops for a couple of weeks, I needed to give them some lovin'. LOL

This is the inside- I wonder why it posted sideways? I think finishing the inside of the card makes it look more "polished"- don't you?

Details- All available from The Angel Company
Stamps- Gerbera Daisy, Trendy greetings & Curls and Swirls
Ink- Raw Sienna, Cognac, Orangerie, Burnt Umber and Noir Palette inks and Versamark
Cardstock- Black, and Orange and Yellow Orange
Misc- Clear embossing powder, Mega Scalloped Circle punch, pop dots

Items from my stash-
Gingham ribbon, Pearl Glimmer Mist, Dew Drop, sentiment stamp

Until later~

Lisa, what a pretty card! Your friend will be so delighted to receive it. I love how you finished the inside as well. I try, but don't very often finish the inside of my cards, but I love the ones I do finish! Anyway, great card!!!
