STAMPlorations - a reminder

Hi bloggy friends, and welcome to a post to remind you that there is still time to enter the STAMPlorations sketch/theme challenge. 
Here is a little more inspiration for you!


This time I went with our theme of
but you could go with the sketch or both if you prefer.
I love my Copics and I LOVE this daisy stamp from the Bloom Sketches set. They look so crisp and clean, so versatile and easy to colour with any medium. So for this card I went with the colours at Can you CASe it? and the sketch at Sketch Saturday (Oops, I think I took a liberty with the relative sizes of the rectangular panels now I come to look again!) As you like it also want your fave flowers.
I have a small bowl of daisies growing on a table on the patio, that I can see from the snug. It really cheers me up to see their sunny heads turn to the sky.


The botanical name for these beauties is ARGYRANTHEMUM or marguerite daisies


These aren't mine, it's raining today, so I borrowed some from Google Image! I also have a tub of pink ones and did have some with white petals with yellow centers, as well as some wild Ox Eye daisies blooming in the wild flower meadow I'm trying to cultivate.
Anyway enough of the botany lesson, I stamped and masked three of the beauties and some leaves then coloured them with Copics. The leaves are not the correct ones but they are all I had to hand!
The sentiment from Balloons and Banners was stamped on a diecut banner and mounted on a scrap of kraft. I use a bit of kraft and green ribbon from the stash to finish the layout.
For more STAMPlorations inspiration check out the rest of the DT here, where you will also find all the Ts and Cs.
