A Daisy Thank You

Hi there-

I gave up crafty shopping for lent, and during that time I was blessed with a few challenge wins that included crafty products.  

Along with several other prizes a stamp set of the winners choice was graciously provided by Bev of Uniko Studios (thank you!), as a prize from their recent 6th birthday challenge.

I fell in love with these Gerbera Daisies.  I love that they come in such bold colors.



I love coloring flowers, and one of my most favorite ways is to heat emboss and then add color with Zig Markers - the colors are bold and beautiful.  I also rubbed a little distress glaze on the bloom after it was dry to protect it from renegade rain drops.  This card is headed across the ocean..

I'd like to enter this card into several challengs:
AAA Cards - Favorite Technique 
Double D Challenges - Twine
The Card Concept - Photo
Addicted to Stamps and More- Make your mark



Thank you so much for stopping by!
