Sunny Daisy Greetings



Today I am super excited to share this cheery card I create with Dare 2 B Artzy's New Totally Tracy Find Your Purpose stamp set! 

 I started by stamping the flower image from this stamp set several times onto white cardstock filling my background piece. I then lightly outlined the flowers with Specturm Noir IB1 marker.  
 The little pop of color added so much to the flowers! I then colored the flower centers with my Y15 Copic marker and added accents with my Spectrum Noir GB8 marker!

  I matted the flower background onto black cardstock. I stamped my greeting from the Blissful Blossoms Stamp set and matted it on black cardstock.  I added a Sunshine Artzy Doodle banner and a coordinating bow to finish off the card! Hope you are inspired to get stamping!!!
