Punched Daisy Garden

I used the " Mini Sun" punch to create the center of the daisy.

Punches used for this card:  Medium Daisy; Oak Leaf; Mini Sun;
Martha Stewart Grass and Butterflies

 Another fun time using my punches.  I love daisies so wanted to use the daisy punch today to create a Springtime card.  There are two layers for each daisy.  Each one was shaped using the tools from the "Flower Tool Kit".  The "Mini Sun" was used for the center of each flower.  Using the stylus, each one was cupped to give it the appearance of the center of a daisy.  Joan sent me a new glue that I have fallen in love with when working on my flowers.  It is called "Art Glitter" adhesive.   I attached the layers with this glue then filled the center with this glue and placed the shaped sun over it.  This center really helps to make the daisy look realistic.

The border at the top of the card was created with the Spellbinders "Floral Doily Accent" borderGreen Dew Drop embellishments were added.  For the bottom of the card, a Tim Holtz, Sizzix, "On the Fence" die was cut.  Two strips of grass created with the Martha Stewart "Grass" punch were used on the front and in the back of the fence.  The flowers were arranged around the fence and leaves tucked in. 

The sentiment and pretty frame are from the JustRite "Elegant Frames" stamp set.  It was stamped with dark green ink on white card stock and cut out with scissors.  It was layered on dark green card stock and a small frame cut around it to help it show up better.  Martha Stewart small yellow butterflies were  added to complete the card.

All products used to create this card can be purchased at Joan's Gardens.

Tomorrow I will have a tag for the Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  Don't forget to go over and vote for your favorite tag in the current challenge.

This is lovely, Selma. It is nice to see I am not the only one that wrote names on my MS punches! Daisies grow wild in fields, but I can not get them to grow in my beds! I have tried and tried!
