Daisy Encouragment

Welcome

I wanted a card to encourage a friend, and this is the result... with help from Our Daily Bread Designs dies and stamps - thank you ODBD!


I started with one of the Scriptures from the Grace's Hope Set, stamped it with 'Bottle' dye ink. After cutting it with a die from the Lavish Layers Die Set, I sponged the edges before removing the die.


That was then layered over a metallic red piece of card that had been cut with another die from the same set.
 

The 'scrolly' die cuts were cut from an oddment of card that was in a kit.  They were fairly long, so I snipped them in half and tucked them behind the layered flowers.


The layered flowers are a mix of brands, the top daisy is from Prima, the rest from an unmarked packet. 
 The brad was also unmarked, but the perfect match with the scroll die cuts.
The patterned paper from and Amy Tangerine 6x6 stack.
