Blog Hop!! Greet The Day With Gerber



For todays set of Greet The Day With Gerber I made two samples to show the wonderful vesatility of these lovely flowers that are perfect for year round use and all occasions. The first daisy image was stamped in a moss green and lightly colored with Prismacolor pencils. Stamped the sentiment in black over this. The daisy image was stamped on the cardstock repeatedly in a similar shade ink, added white organdy ribbon from MFP.
My second card uses the Snow Storm white base, a Nestabilities frame and the single Gerber daisy image colored in various colors of Copic markers. The brad in the middle is from the center of the daisy stamped in brown and colored in yellow.
