Flower Frames - Julie Warner Guest Designer

Julie here again and I hope your week has gone well! The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Anything Goes, so be sure to check it out! Since anything goes, I wanted to use this beautiful Framed Daisies image. This is one of those cards that the idea starts out simply enough, but as it develops, it gets more and more complicated. I'm sure that never happens to you!

After stamping the image on a large white panel and coloring with Copics, I decided I really wanted to die cut it. First problem, none of my rectangle dies are big enough. Ok, so I used a larger square and resized it...not a problem, except I combined it with the out of the box technique, too. So it's a little more complicated. But it worked and I liked the way the corner flowers pop against the navy blue paper. I used the same paper to back the greeting oval. I decided to repeat the daisy corners on the background and colored the lines and shaded the vines but the daisies themselves were fussy cut and added on top. Two extra daisies were added where the frames stopped on the sides, just to finish the line. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
Thank so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend.
