Hello Daisy

A last hurrah for Upsy Daisy, which will be retiring at month's end.  For this card, I got a little artsy by stamping in light gray ink (stamped off) and then shading the daisies with a pencil and blending stump.

I love the little 3-D daisies I made with the Boho Blossom punch.  There has been some not-so-nice descriptions of the new In Color, Summer Starfruit, but I have to say, I really like it!  It is a nice masculine color, and it looks great as an accent.

This card uses this week's Play Date Cafe color combo

and Retro Sketches layout.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Paper: Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Whisper White, First Edition DSP, Night & Day DSP; Ink: Going Gray; Accessories: Linen thread, Boho Blossom punch, Itty Bitty punch pack, Corner rounder punch, Blending stump, Pencil.

Thanks for stopping by!
