Hi Friend!

Hello everyone,
It is my day to take over the blog at Victorine Originals, and I decided I needed some more "just because" type cards for my stash to send to friends who may need a pick me up or just some happy mail.  These daisies are just so versatile and pretty, so let's jump right in and talk about the card:
I started by taking an A2 sized, side folding, white card base and stamping one of the large daisy images from the Raisin Boat Oops A Daisy (10236) set three times on the front edge, while the card was open.  I then fussy cut the edge with the intention of leaving it so there would be a fancy edge while the card was closed, that changed though as I worked on my design, which I will explain shortly.  I also waited to color the images until I finished cutting so if I made a mistake it would be easier to correct then if I made a mistake cutting after I colored them.  I then used 5 different shades of pinks from my Tombow markers and colored the flowers, then using a white gel pen I added some details to each flower to add more interest.  I then stamped the "Hi" and "Friend" sentiments from the same set in black versafine ink.  Once the white ink had dried I added a coat of shimmer to each flower using a Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen.  I then decided that I wanted a bit more color so found some ombre paper in my stash that went perfect and added that to the inside front panel.

For the flower centers I added glossy accents and then sprinkled a dark bronze glitter over the top and waited for everything to dry before cleaning up the stray glitter.  I hope you have enjoyed my card and please join us tomorrow for a new challenge.  See you all soon!
