It's coming up daisies!

Okay - all of a sudden I have found much interest in my Upsy Daisy set. I don't know why I didn't just love this set before....but it's begun to earn more ink time here recently. Maybe because it's finally spring and the daisies are taking over my flower bed. They are multiplying where they shouldn't be - I'm gonna have to dig a bunch up and either get rid of them or find a spot to put the meantime - until mine actually bloom, I'll admire these:
I really like the look of the Whisper White ink on the Kraft cardstock. And here I simply edged one side of them with a Rose Red marker to give them a little "pop". Because the stems didn't go to the edge of the Kraft piece, I covered it with my ribbon and a coordinating button. Clever - right? The pattern paper is from the often used Sweet Pea paper pack. If you don't have this paper yet - you better get your hands on some. You've got 11 days to get some ordered and then it's gone!!!! This paper pack is a great deal. For a little over the cost of 2 packs of DSP, you get the amount of FOUR packs of DSP!!! Plus, all of the paper is SUPER cute.
See how that little bit of marker work adds so much?

I broke out my Pink Pirouette stamp pad to stamp the label from Vintage Labels, and Rose Red to stamp the sentiment.

Now, this one is essentially the same card, but I changed up the ribbon/sentiment portion. You may remember a very similar card from this post. I used one less layer of DSP on this card. And got to thinking that it really needed some extra color, hence the Old Olive ribbon and label color.

Well folks - that's all for today. I'm sure the little ones will be awake soon and the two older ones are going to beg me to take them to the tractor for rides. The corn planting has finally begun! We'll be praying for 7 days of really nice weather, and no breakdowns and hopefully all of the corn can get in the ground then!
