watching the day go by ...

I love this image it so reminds me of lazy warm summer days sitting in the garden  listening to the water tumble into the pond from the waterfall as the bees hum collecting pollen from the lavender and other flowers and the birds sing or feed their babies on the bird table. It is a time when I have the time to sit that i can truely say I am at peace, as i can drift into daydreams and not worry about all the things life throws at us or the housework or even the gardening that I probably should be doing.                                                                                    This stamp is one of many available from sugar nellie  and was among the first I bought from there as I just love her. She is called Daisy  I think and if not I think she ought to be.
I decided I would keep this card mostly white as its a colour i love for summer though don't wear that much as its not that practical especially when lifting wheelchairs in and out of cars or doing the other jobs of life but i can dream.

I stamped her onto a fancy spellbinders die cut circle and coloured her with promarkers and had a try at using a dotty technique for her grounding and sky.

The base of the card I used a die-sire embossing folder and some embossed dotty paper sorry mot sure which folder that one is . I added a die cut swirl and some punched daisies to embellish. To give a fresh feel to the card and add some warmth I added yellow centers to the embossed and punched flowers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

sassy studios-make your own embellishments

I saw your card on the POP challenge and had to come look. I love this gorgeous image and agree with you that she looks so peaceful, as though she is contemplating the world in that little flower. I love your daisy backing paper too - it really echoes the flower image.
