Gerbera Daisy

I put together a card using my favorite flower, gerbera daisies.  I made this flower by cutting 3 - 3" flowers and 6 - 1 1/2" flowers on my Silhouette.  I bent each pedal in the middle.  I wet down some thinner green paper to cover a brad and cut two circles in green a little bigger than that brad and just snipped them up with a scissors.  Now I want to make more, gerbera daisies come in so many wonderful color combinations!
The wood grain paper is from Cloud 9 Design - weathered wood, soft ivory.  The green background is WeR Memory Keepers Anthologie collection.  I embossed the sentiment with Stampendous Pearlutre jade embossing powder.  The green and pink cardstock are from my stash.

This card is entered in the following challenges:


Have a great day!
