Daisies Happy Birthday Wishes Card - Inkspirational Sept Photo Challenge (#37)

We have a photo inspiration challenge for you at Inkspirational this week and here's the pretty photo we'd like you to be inspired by.

 

I was drawn to the Michaelmas Daisies in the photo.  I stamped several flowers onto watercolour paper and coloured them using inks and a wet paintbrush.  I embossed a panel of green Core'dinations CS with a woodgrain folder, scuffed the embossing to bring out the detail and adhered it to a side opening white A6 card base.  I added the ribbon, die cut the label shape, stamped the sentiment, punched the flowers and arranged them on the label - popping three flowers up.  I popped up the label shape and added iridescent gems to the label to finish the card front.


Here's the inside and the envelope.


I hope you'll play along with our Inkspirational photo challenge this week, I'd love to come and see what you make  based on the photo!
