Don't Eat The Daisies...

Good Morning...

Showing my age or what!  Don't Eat The Daisies, a film starring the gorgeous Doris Day.  Once I thought of that, it became an 'earworm'!  Anyway, I am sure this delightful two have no intention of eating the daisies, they look far more likely to lace them into each other's hair!
Today's card is for the Lili of the Valley Design Collective.
I have used the beautiful stamp of these two lovelies - 'Meant To Be' 
and coloured them with Copics.  I used some gorgeous Lili of The Valley papers to create the layers and the die cut branch and ribbon.  
I added a few small flowers from The Ribbon Girl.  
Finally, and this is something new - another new technique done whilst holding my breath and closing my eyes!  I used the fabulous LOTV stamp set - 'Greetings Postmarks' to add the sentiments which I stamped right over the top of the finished card! (twitchy but of course, I love the effect and I would definitely do it again)!

This is such a gorgeously cheerful colour combo and all the layers of DP look so lovely :-)
That was a real 'eeeek' moment with the postmarks I'm sure but they look they will have to go on my wish list I think!
I am never going to be able to look at this image again without thinking that little chap is about to gobble up the daisy!

Big hugs, Kat xx

You've put together a gorgeous card here Sue... the pink and yellow look really bright and summery... and the fabulous diecuts are perfect too! I'm loving your colouring of the little image of course, and I'm sure it was scary putting that postmark image AFTER the card was finished.... I've ruined many a card that way!! hehe!

Big hugs
