A Bunch Of Daisies!

hi everyone!  Happy Valentines Day!  I hope you are able to spend this day with the one you love above all else!

Do you remember this card I made with the Big Bloom image by Jane Beljo not long ago?  Well, I thought it was the perfect card to make more of for all of the birthdays I have coming up this month.  I printed the image on to kraft card stock and made up several.

Each one is a little different, but all of them feature the daisy printed on kraft and colored with a white colored pencil.  All of the sentiments were computer generated.   Here are close ups of each one

 this one is same as the first as far as the lay out goes.

this one I just angled the images and put them on the side of the card

Same as the first, but I added a scored line and a pierced scalloped border

this one has the image angled and I have a punched scallop border and embossed dots in each scallop

This last one is the same as the last only minus the border.

This whole idea really helped me get a leg up on some of the birthday cards I was behind on this month!  All except the last one have brown liquid applique puffed up in the centers of the flowers.

Thanks for the well wishes to my husband on his knee surgery.  My bruise is playing second fiddle to his knee, but it's finally starting to feel a little better.  I can sit without wincing now!

Holly, I love the cards and that is a great idea to make all for the month the same. I am really liking the triangles.
