Gerbera Daisy

For one of the yahoo groups I'm in we do a MCE, monthly card exchange. I'm sure I've mentioned it before. Anyhoo, this month is to use the color Emerald or green and Lily of the Valley flowers or any flowers if you don't have those.
I couldn't decide what to do so I finally went to one of my favorite stamps, Gerbera Daisy from TAC. Several of the petals are popped up for dimension...I think Kim created a monster in me as I just love that technique now that I don't cut myself when cutting the images! LOL!
I did have a little accident with one petal but I think I fixed it pretty nice.
I used a sketch from Taylored Expressions, TECC45.

supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: TAC Gerbera Daisy, TAC Here's to you-retired,
paper: TAC Gentle Beginnings
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Giverny Green,
others: prismacolors, OMS, CM cutting system, pink poinsettia blingz shimmerz, granny smith bella baubles,

Also, I have my good friend, Jennie, visiting today through Wednesday. I have posts scheduled so there will still be projects to see but not sure how much time I'll spend on leaving comments and such. Have a great week!

A really lovely card, I never used to be keen on flower stamps but the more I see them in use the more I am liking them. Perhaps I should dig mine out again and have another play.
Hope your having a good weekend with your friend.
