Collecting Daisies


 
Here is card I have made using a favourite stamp from Elisabeth Bell which I have coloured with promarkers and chalk.  The background has been embossed with clouds and I have added chalk to it.  The design paper is from Nitwits and I have added some ribbon and lace across the middle.  The sentiment is from Hunkydory and I have attached a charm with a star brad.  The flowers have been die cut from felt backed with thin card and I have added card candi to the centres.
 
I have never tried die cutting felt before and as the felt was rather thin I thought I had better back it with thin card before attempting to cut it.  It worked ok but I think I will get much thicker felt in the future.

What an absolutely sweet little card! You've really done a masterful job with the coloring and I love how her dress reflects the patterned paper and color scheme you used. The flowers give it a great bit of dimension and I love the elegant lace, too! This is a card that made me smile and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
