Smile ~ The card concept

Hi there !

Time to share my second (and last) card as guest designer at The card concept.
Thanks so much for the opportunity! I enjoyed to share my projects with you at TCC!




So many favourite elements of mine in this photo, from the daisies to the fabulous colour combination, Love at first sight!



I used a cutting file from the Silhouette on-line store called "daisies" . The flowers are so beautiful, it really didn't need much more. I decided to use the negative of the cut, and added a layer of grey and white polka dots beneath the top layer. Three yellow enamel dots and a sentiment to finish the design off.

This is my clean and graphic take on the sketch... what will you create?

I can't wait to see !

Thanks for visiting me today!

I would never have thought to use polkadots peeking through, but they give the card a homey, friendly feel!
