Cheerful Daisies

We all need some cheer these days, don't we? Such horrible tragedies in the world. My prayers are being said for all those that have suffered such loss that they will be healed physically and emotionally and strengthened to bear the burdens that have been put upon them.
I love this sentiment and it is so pertinent right now. It says, "May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead." The daisy image was inked with markers before being stamped onto the white. It is matted with a deeper green and popped up on the card front. The sentiment is stamped with Peeled Paint ink onto Certainly Celery cardstock and cut into the banner shape and matted with yellow to match the daisies. The celery card front is embossed with TPS Quatrefoil folder and added to the darker green card front. The finishing touch - the yellow gingham ribbon. Don't daisies just demand gingham ribbon?

I didn't do a traditional rainbow for my card, but did use all the colors of one. The blue card front is embossed with Sizzix Texture Fades Bookcover Set and mounted onto the white card front. The daisy background stamp is inked with Distress markers before stamping onto the white and then cutting/embossing with Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles. The sentiment was inked with the same color markers and cut/embossed with another of the rectangles from the set and popped up. I added the yellow gingham ribbon for a little more cheer. I hope it brightens your day and the recipient too.

Have a beautiful day!
