Upsy Daisy - inspired by SCS gallery

Here's a card I made yesterday after I looked at the Upsy Daisy gallery. Such beautiful cards. I saw a few similar cards to this one so I thought I'd give it a try.


I used the circle stamp from a old SU set called "Shapes". Inked it up with summer sun ink, and then rolled just the edges of the stamp in pumpkin pie ink and stamped on white card stock. Then I stamped the flower stamps from Upsy Daisy with black ink. I decided that I wanted some sparkles but it was too late to emboss with irridescent powder, so I just added stickles.
I love the sentiment I used. It is from SU's retired set "Beautiful Beach".
Cardstock used are Pumpkin Pie and basic black, along with GP white. Ribbon is Pumpin Pie from SU.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I'll be back again tomorrow with this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge Card. Plus, I'll be posting a freebie (for a short time only) of a cute digi here too in a couple of days.
