Etsy Inspired Challenge #125 - Daisy Petal Designs

* Edited to add .. Coupon Code for your 10% discount over at Daisy Petal Designs is 'inspired10', not as listed below *

Happy Saturday :)

We have a lovely lazy day ahead of us today, a bit of cardmaking and then some friends are coming over in the afternoon for coffee and cake, then we are settling down for a bit of  Saturday night TV.

Our featured shop is Daisy Petal Designs.. I love the description of her shop... 'I am creating artisan designed hair accessories and jewelry in the hopes of adding a little something pretty to everyday'.  I think that's what we all do in our paper crafting worlds, add a little something pretty to everyday, do you?!

These are the little pictures that inspired the card.  I loved the little pink roses so used a little pink prima flower, I used the little hairclips and the text background as inspiration for my background paper.

If I'd had time I'd have made something else for this gorgeous beauty, isn't it scrumptious?!!

Our sponsors this week are Shannon's Sentiments who offer fun digital images. As you can see in my card I used their Happy Valentine's Day image, I love the fancy script, so elegant.

So pop on over to check out what the rest of the DT made.
