Delightful Daisy, Rose Wonder, Birthday Card

It's not a thank you card!!!  Don't fall over!!! LOL I know I've made a lot of thank you cards lately because I was in need of them.  I might need a couple more but I don't need them right away. I now need to sit down and write out the thank you cards. 

This was a very simple and fun card to make. I had a scrap piece of the daisy paper from the "Delightful Daisy" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  My DSP measures 1-7/8" x 5-1/4".  The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy card stock. I taped the DSP strip to the card base about 1" from the fold.  This card opens from the bottom, so the fold is on the top. 

I cut two Whisper White strips.  The top one is 5-1/4" x 1-1/4" and the bottom one is 5-1/4" x 1-5/8".  I cut two pieces of Daffodil Delight card stock.  The top one measures 5-1/4" x 1-3/8" and the bottom piece was cut 5-1/4" x 1-3/4".  

I stamped the words from the "Rose Wonder" set using Night of Navy ink.  They were stamped on the larger, bottom piece of Whisper White piece.  

I stamped two flowers using Night of Navy ink. I punched them out.  I stamped a scrap piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and using Crushed Curry ink for the center of the flower. I punched that piece out using a 3/4" circle punch.  

Now for the assembly.  I curled the petal of the flowers using my bone folder. Then I taped the two flowers together and then the flower center. I used Wink of Stella on the center of the flower and set it aside to dry.

I taped the Daffodil Delight pieces to their corresponding Whisper White pieces.  I set those pieces in place using Dimensionals. The smaller/thinner one on the top and the wider one with the words on the bottom.  I set the flower in place using a Dimensional.  And that was it.  

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make.  And it wasn't a thank you card.  

And the best part of this card is, I made two of them!!!  Yup, one for me and one for some lucky reader!!!  Just leave a comment, you don't have to say much, I'm not groping for compliments.  You can just say "pick me" or "I want it", or whatever comes to your mind. I will have a random drawing  on Sunday April 29, 2018 and the winner will receive the card in the mail (I had to add the date because someone will come along months or years later and enter, so to avoid that I included the date).

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
