Uniko Studio Challenge #45



By now you may have heard my squeals of delight playing with my latest prize:  the Uniko Gerbera Daisies!  I am so happy to now have TWO Uniko sets - thank you, Beverly!  Just in time for their Something Old, Something New challenge!

I had a little fun with Pantone's Color of the Year:  Ultra Violet! 

ULTRA VIOLET in Graphics Design and Packaging
 
 ... and my fun little design 'luck' turned into a design feature today!  Remember that little hole?

Here is Something Old 'new to me' and Something New: the gorgeous Originally Organic - in sentiment form! 


Now.  about that optional love?  everyone knows the old familiar: he loves me, he loves me not!  you can't do that without a daisy now, can you?

Thanks for the visit!  You'll be well sick of me before the week is up!

This is beautiful! It reminds me of those sets of test tube type vases in a little wire rack...you know what I mean, right!! Marvelous coloring too. And no, I could never get sick of you!!

OH My Goodness Michele - Swoon, Swoon, Swoon or WHAT! Your gerbera card is an inspiration! Delightfully coloured and love the the little die-cut circles for those stems. So striking, so elegant and so impressive. Thanks for playing along at Uniko with it this month xx

Brenda said...

Well now, I am definitely swooning over this one Michele! I love those daisies and how you colored them. The "holes" you have in that strip is perfect to "tuck" those daisies into as well. Clever my friend, very clever!!!! Clever with the "love" part of the challenge too! And I love how you embossed your sentiment in white to not distract from your beautiful daisies. I'm so amazed.....and still swooning. Hugs, Brenda

Barb Ghig said...

Another gorgeous creation with this set, Michele! I love how you used Pantone's Color of the Year and how you placed your daisies into their own little 'hole'...such a great design element!

Linda Callahan said...

You and these daisies are a match made in Heaven! And oh that purple is fabulous!

TaeEun said...

I love purple! Your daisies in the holes are so pretty and fun! I've never done white embossing on white but I should try it! The white sentiment looks gorgeous!

Love the beautiful shades of purple of the daisies, Michele! Everything else being white makes the pretty flowers stand out. Hideko :-)

Fabulous card Michele! I love the white on white embossing with the soft water coloured purples and the hole die idea is genius! X

Wow! This is wonderful. I do like the pretty Gerbera daisy and all those lovely shades of purple! Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with Uniko this month. Deborah, DT.

This shows you how far behind in commenting. I just saw this in my inbox and talk about squealing. This is super duper fantastic, Michele. The only thing better that daisies is purple ones.

Jane said...

Oh wow! What a clever and original way to show the Uniko gerbera in all its beautiful glory! Love the pink and purple too. Thanks for joining in with the current Uniko challenge.

Beverley said...

WOWZERS! You really are having LOTS of fun with the Uniko Gerbera and I am so happy that you are. LOVE the white on white embossing and the Gerbera's look FAB in the shades of purple. Those punched holes to nestle the stems inside is such a neat idea. Lovely to see you in the Uniko gallery and joining in on the fun. Hugs Bev x

Oh my goodness - what a stunningly beautiful card. I love it. Would you mind if I CASE'd the design at sometime in the future?
