The Card Concept 39 Daisies

With a little help from Laurie Willison, I've managed to work in a little detail to my card that appears in the inspiration photo at The Card Concept #39 - Daisies:

See the little cut-out handle on that adorable aqua box?
I'll bet, if you look at bit closer, you'll find it on my - I'm calling it Clean and Layered - card!
 
 
 
Yes!  There it is, Laurie's wonderful Card Hanger Die - which I've used for gift bags - works the charm -  but never on a card!  Perfect in every way for my little daisies!

It is always a good day when I can pull out Dad's hammer for a little something extra on my white panel by way of partial embossing with Sizzix for Stampin' Up.  My daisies are compliments of Wplus9's Doodle Buds - finally!  Loved playing with these stamps, their matching dies, and even my inside sentiment - which I'm keeping to myself for a certain someone =]

Before I leave I would be totally remiss if I didn't wish the darling, lovely, sweet, and funny Happy Dancin' Bev an extra HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  Bev has been partying since 5:30 this morning ... and why not?  Keep that party going, Ms. Bev!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

E.T.A.  Oh Darnell!!! Please forgive my forgetful brain!  Hope you don't mind an edited post!  I had Bev on the brain today!!!  Adding this one to NBUS Challenge #5 - new is great, whenever you use it!


Every one of the cards I've made this week had something that was NBUS and in my rush to post forgot to link!!!

But I'm adding this card, and hope that it will fly!

Thanks, D!!!  LOve your challenge!   =]

How clever you are to notice the cut-out handle, and die cut your own with Laurie's Card Hanger Die! Love your 'Doodle Buds' so much...they match perfectly to the daisies in the photo, and the beautiful font on this sentiment is the perfect finishing touch! Great job on the challenge, Michele!

Perty, perty, perty! And so far, I'm still awake without a nap in sight! Had that great-awesome-delicious tamale lunch, and did a little shopping, and the day isn't over yet! So nice to talk to you my friend. Thanks for the wishes!! Bev

What a clever idea to use Laurie's die on a card and have those cute daisies peek out from it! Very pretty!

Taunya Butler said...

Such a stunning card - what a great idea to use the hangar die to echo the box handle. I'm well impressed with how you manage to capture little details like that on your cards. Love!

Perfect! Love the panel of blue, the selective coloring, that sliver of black!

Pinned this. I love how you made daisies from Doodle Buds and since I do have it, I will be making some myself.

Well, your clever adaptation of this die (which I have...yayyy!) to become a holder for your darling daisies! One stunning, attention-paid-to-subtle-details card that has me smiling. Blessed? Yes...because you're in my life!
