Pink Daisy Dream

Hello and welcome! 

Today is the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge. It's Lolo's week to host and  her theme is "Favorite Stamps and/or Dies". Anyone is welcome to join us with a new creation following the theme and our prize this week comes from Oakwood Archer so hopefully you'll join in for a chance to win!

And here is what I made using some of my newer favorites along with an old favorite. 

I don't buy new stamps all that often (many new releases seem very similar to what I already have and love) but this beautiful Penny Black stamp Daisy Dream had to be mine, it's from a more recent Penny Black release. This is actually a large stamp with these pretty daisies inside a glass jar/bottle but for today's card I only used the flowers for a different way of using it.  

I also used a sentiment from Penny Black's Blooming Sentiments set, another favorite  a couple of years old. Then the script border on the bottom edge is an all time favorite from Whimsy Stamps, no longer available unfortunately. I use this stamp all the time! Finally, I have also used my favorite new dies, Penny Black's Soaring die set that includes 4 sizes of these pretty butterflies along with a fun circle frame. 

The background was done with Penny Black's Hypnotic stencil and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink, and I used  Picked Raspberry Distress ink for coloring in the pink daisies, Mowed Lawn for the leaves.

A few sticky pearls were added as embellishments on the butterflies, mounted on white and the I used a pretty blue card base (SU card stock, but I am not sure of the color. Probably no longer in their current assortment.)

Card inspiration came from The Card Concept challenge. As you can see I was inspired by these pretty colors. And I would say the style is defined as classy and elegant. There is definitely something classy and elegant about Penny Black florals and sentiments!
