Four Seasons Challenge August - Dreaming of Daisies

Hello everyone, I've been missing from blogland for the last half of July visiting my family overseas and the last several posts on my blog had been scheduled ahead of time. We just got back on Saturday, a day later than planned due to a 15 hour overnight layover so I'm a day behind. It was so wonderful to see my family again after several years but I am also ready to get back to a normal routine. 

Since it's the first day of August we have a new challenge starting today at the Four Seasons challenge blog! Hard to believe it's the last month of summer challenges so please come share all your summer themed creations with us. As always there is fun mood board which is totally optional as "Anything Summer Goes"

As usual I was inspired by the mood board which is easy to see :) 

I used the Penny Black stamp Daisy Dream as the focal point. I masked off the botton and part of the top to ink up the sky with a circle die cut in place for a sun. I also used my clouds stencil but the clouds blend it too much.

The flowers were all stamped again on snippets of white card stock and fussy cut. This image acutally includes a vase/jar for the daisies, but I only  used the flowers this time which was easy to do since I masked off that part of the card.

The sentiment is from Penny Black's Blooming Sentiments. The card is clean and simple in style but definitely did take some time to make since all those blossoms had to be fussy cut. While I always enjoy fussy cutting, I feel like I need to get some reading glasses. 

Hope you'll join us this month. The challenge runs until August 25th so there is plenty of time.

Challenge I'd like to share with:

Penny Black Saturday - use PB stamps

Fabulous card Ellie -love the slight texture in the sky - looks very 'real'. The daisies look so fresh there against the blue. I can remember resisting getting glasses, and now I have two pairs, one for general use and one for close work...
