Daisies for a dreary winter day!

Daisies-2

Hello everyone!
Today's Free4 All on SCS was to use flowers!  How fun, especially since Our Daily Bread designs just came out with this awesome Daisy/ Black Eyed Susan set this month! 

I stamped the Daisy/ Black Eyed Susan image twice so I could cut out and pop up the center flower.. The base is Gina K, the dp is Recollections (green) and Lasting Impressions (yellow). I used a SB Lace Doily Motif and Sizzix and CB EFs.  The pearls are Hero Arts, and the ribbon was from my stash.

 I hope you all are enjoying this blessed time of year.... celebrating with family and friends, enjoying the wonderful music of the season, the sights and sounds we all hold so dear.... but most of all, I hope you are taking time to reflect on that priceless gift that was given to us 2000+ years ago, and are finding the JOY and PEACE that comes as a result of receiving that gift!!!
hugs,

Oh Grace this is fabulous - love the way you have lifted the centre daisy and moulded the petals. The colours are beautiful too.

I trust you and yours are at peace.
Blessings

I know I already commented on this Grace, but I'm perusing your blog to see which one to CASE for this week and this just keeps POPPING out at me. I just really LOVE this color combo and summeryness (??) of it. I bet I could find some pearls etc. although mine prolly won't compare but I'd like to try! :) Daisies are my faves--I think because they're so simple and innocent. Reminds me of childhood. Beautiful inspiration!! *Ü*
