Dainty Daisy

Last year I bought some Penny Black stickers - thought they would come in sometime if I had to make a quick card! As usual, they've been laying about and this week I made two cards using them - one of which was sent to Maureen (as she was 21 again this week) and here is the other!
The stickers have a lovely 'stamped,coloured, distressed' look to them.
I used basic cream cardstock and some K and Co paper for the background. The image was mounted onto DCWV 'Naturals' card in cream and blue and I used the same card to punch out the trellis. I stacked the trellis on top of each other, positioning the blue just slightly off centre behind the cream.
The sentiment was printed out using the same background paper and matted and finally I tried to link the flowers and trellis together by mimicking the flowers using a similar cream flower with a metal flower brad in the centre.

This is just another for the Pink box.

Hiya Viv. So pretty and I adore the very delicate colours you have used. The trellis really makes the flowers stand out, very classy. Happy crafting.
