TUESDAY February 8, 2011- Greet the Day with Gerber
Here is one of my creations using this fun new set. I love these daisies and the sentiments are awesome too! And what is better with yellow daisies than a blue gingham check? Doesn't this just scream spring?

I stamped the image using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. I then cut/embossed it using Spellbinders Labels Four. The card is this great heavy cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers, then I added the panel of the blue and white gingham check and the blue borders made with a Martha Stewart Swirling Lace punch. The sentiment was backed with the blue and added to the bottom. I ten added the polka dot organdy ribbon, button and the fabulous blue and white baker's twine. You can get all that at Mark's Finest Papers. Too cute!


Now go and check out these other great creations!

I don't know whether you were going for this look but it is so country I love it. It actually reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard of OZ LOL.
