Daisy, Daisy ......

..... give me your answer do, as the song says.
Daisies are one of my favourite summer flowers.
I love the wild ox eye daisies that spring up in my wild flower area year after year, their flowers are so cheerful, the white petals shimmering in the sun as they dance in the breeze.
So, they are just the thing to use for August's challenge at HLS CAS -


Here's how I used them

It's much easier to design a CAS card when you stick to keeping your design to just 1/3rd of the front panel.
I simply die cut a panel of white card, inked some Salty Ocean DOx in the bottom third then added some die cut and watercoloured daisies by Joy, to it. My sentiment, STAMPlorations Balloons and Banners, was stamped on a white die cut banner and placed within the bottom third, leaving 2/3rds as lovely 'white' space. The finished panel was added with pads to a white base card. 

So for more inspiration check out the rest of the team here, then why not join in.

  12. This is so pretty, Jules! I opened another window to find that cone flower / daisy die and when I found it, I was thrilled to discover that I own it already, lol!
