Daisy, Daisy

I haven't made any cards for a few days but needed to cheer myself up after a bit of a traumatic weekend. I saw a couple of challenges that got me thinking, one of which was a sketch at The Pixie Cottage and sketches always make things a little bit easier when you're struggling with designing a card. So here's my creation:

The photograph was taken this evening as the light was fading so it looks a bit washed out, the card is quite a bit brighter in daylight.

I have used:

6" x 6" card blank
Pink spotty and the flowery DPs are from the Zoe Pearn So Sweet collection
Blue card for mats from stash
Image was sent to me by Sarah (Rainmac on MSE), it is gorgeous, thank you Sarah, and I've coloured it with Promarkers
Flowers are from stash and fastened to card with a brad
Ribbon from QVC
Flower charm (my newest purchase and I love them) from The Works

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Pixie Cottage #23 - Sketch
Totally Gorjuss #35 - Sugar and Spice
The Crazy Challenge - All Things Spotty
Bunny Zoe's #1 - Nice and Girly
Stamp Something - Something Summer
Practical Scrappers - Flowers
