Card Swap Sunday! Delightful Daisy Suite

It's Card Swap Sunday, the day I share a card I've created for a swap or received in a swap.  Today's card is courtesy of my friend Lisa Althouse who presented the Delightful Daisy Suite of products at On Stage in Calgary.  She is so talented and I'm so lucky to belong to a swap group with her every month.

Lisa's card uses the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch.  Lisa also added some paper from the gorgeous Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and some of the new 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon on her card.  The ribbon has straight stitching on one side and little "x" on the other.  It's the perfect width too and easy to tie.

Lisa inked up the daisy image in Night of Navy and stamped it twice on Whisper White cardstock.  She then used the Aqua Painter and blended out some of the ink in the center to add that little pop of blue.  The daisy punch cuts it out perfectly and then you just layer on on top of the other to get the full flower look.  In the center is one of the new Gold Faceted Gems which are to die for!

I stamped the scissors and fussy cut them - isn't that saying just perfect? I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the blades of the scissors and on the brush metal pieces.  Did you notice the fine line along the right side of the elements in the the image? I used Smoky Slate ink to anchor the pot and brushes.
