Violet Daisies

Happy Friday!!!

Anyone else glad it's Friday besides me? It's been a long busy week and I am ready for the weekend to begin!!

Last night was Abbi's Christmas program at school. The place was packed to the point of the parents having to sit on the floor of the gymnasium which would have been okay except for the fact that it was wet with the slushy snow people tracked in on their shoes! Other than my wet butt, the program was excellent!!

Today I have a card that was inspired by Stamp TV Spotlight Color Challenge last week. The colors were Fresh Asparagus, Vibrant Violet and White. I was able to get this card submitted for the challenge with a couple hours to spare! Today there is a new color challenge so be sure to check that one out too - K?
The daisies are from Theresa's Purrr-fectly Delightful stamp set and the sentiment treatment is from her new The Giving Tree stamp set.
The daisies were colored with Copics BV02, BV04, BV08/E74, E77, E79/G82, G85, BG96. I used my Sakura Glitter Pen and Niji Waterbrush to watercolor over the daisies to add some sparkle to them. I like doing this technique because it does not alter the colors which I think happens if you just use the glitter pen by itself.
I used a combination of the Spellbinder Labels, 7 & 17 to be exact, for the daisies.
The white paper is embossed with Cuttlebugs Swiss Dots embossing folder and layered on top of the cardbase which is the Vibrant Violet.

Thanks for stopping by today! Stop back tomorrow so check out another one of my Christmas cards I made last weekend using PTI's 2010 Holiday Tags.

Have a fabulous rest of your day!!
