Put a Smile on Your Face

Good morning all.
Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers.
This time our theme is -


Here is my card.

This is my second card as the first got as far as the final mounting on a base card when the ink on the sentiment smudged! When I looked at the front I couls have cried but then looked again and thought, well is there enough stamping on that anyway! So I went with an earlier idea, using this fab stamp from Indigo Blue, Colour Me - Daisy.

I first stamped the image in Memento Canteloupe onto cream linen card and washed the wet ink with water to blend, then overstamped with Tangelo. When dry I cut it out with a stitched square die and added peach Pearly Doodles to the flower center. On a separate square I inked around the edge with Dried Marigold DI and mounted the flower panel on pads the onto a cream card base. The greeting from STAMPlorations was then stamped in Tangelo.

For more inspiration please check out the rest of the DT for some fab inspiration.
