MaryJo's Monday Challenge #165

This is my version of Mary Jo's sketch this week....a little different, definitely a variation. But, although it's very simple....and has almost no stamping, I love it and really wanted to share!

I'm trying to decide if this is Spring-y or Summer-y...what do you think? Those daisies from the Daisy Die....I used the smallest....are just so dang cute. And I thought they'd be perfect for this week's Challenge. Everything on this card is from SU, but, the centers of the flowers are the now-retired Chocolate Chip buttons. I still have a lot of those....and still love them....wish they were still in the SU line....and thought they were perfect for the flower centers.

The Chocolate Chip rick-rack-shaped strip across the card was created with the new Tasteful Trim die....well, it's new for me. It was released in the Holiday Mini, and is still available. Isn't it fun?!! As you can see, I added it to the Whisper White background and then impressed it all in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

Then the flowers were simply added in on Glue Dots (I still have some of the larger glue dots in my stash....and these worked great. However; I'm certain you could use a few Mini Glue Dots or Dimensionals.) I just added in a little greeting, in keeping with the simplicity of the overall card.

So, that's my submission for Mary Jo's Challenge this week.  It's good to join in.....not sure what my problem was, but for the last few weeks, every time I tried to create a card with her sketch of the week, it just went so very wrong!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Great take on the inlaid embossing technique! Fun card. I think it fits the sketch perfectly. Thanks so much for playing along!
