Gerbera Daisies

Hello!  A quick post with a card for two challenge.  The current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge (that closes in just a few hours, yikes!!) and the new Paper Players challenge.   The Timeless Tuesday challenge is an inspiration challenge and they used a photo of a beautiful topiary that is made up of handmade flowers int bright spring colors.  For my card I decided to pull out pink, yellow and green (sorry I don't have the inspiration photo!).   I used the Flourishes set Gerbera Daisies and colored the image with the following Copic markers:  RV21, RV04, R83, Y13, Y15, Y11, YG23 & YG03.   The image was diecut with Spellbinders large plain and scalloped circle dies.   The layout of the card comes from the sketch provided in this week's Paper Players challenge. 



Thanks for taking a peek...

Rosemary....I just have to say WOW! Gerbera Dasies are my favorite flowers because they are so bright and cheerful and that is exactly what your card is! Your shading on the flowers is stunning and I love the tiny pearl accents on the butterflies. Absolutely gorgeous, in every way! Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players this week! :)
