Daisy Chain

Challenges

Simon Says (2) - Recycle

Cute Card (56) - Floral Fantasy

Dutch Dare (44) - Favourite Things

Paperplay (13) - Times 4 It

Pink Elephant (11) - Recycle

Stamp Something - Yellow/Green/Blue

Wow! I can't believe I managed to get six challenges out of this simple little card.

First I thought about the recycling bit as I had just been given some old card fronts and in the pile was one with a daisychain on it (recycling x 2). It only seemed natural to put 'Daisy' with it, so I 'dressed' her in blue which gave me the three colours needed. Next, is rather obvious, 'Daisy' stamp, daisies and daisychain being my 'favourite things' and they are flowers so that includes 'floral fantasy'. Finally, there are four daisies added to the corners and here is the clever part.... If you count the daisies in the daisychain they are divided by four!!!
