Daisy for Casey

The ABC challenge for this week slotted in nicely with a card I need to make for my cousin Claire for her niece Casey as it is her Birthday at the end of the month and she will be 5.

The challenge is

List - 1 Ribbon, 3 Flowers and 6 Brads

I've used the brand new Funky Hand cd Funky Word Books (which, I am sorry to tease, will not be available to buy directly until 11 May!) and this collection is Daisy Chain - lovely green and pinks and a sort of sweet pea kind of pattern on one of the papers.

Anyway, the pages have been cut and then I've just lightly inked the edges in alternate pink and lime green, and dotted the edges of the letters with a pink gel pen for a little more definition. It may look like I have cheated, but I didn't count the centres of the flowers towards the 6 brads! And the brads are not really brads, but card candy which are like brads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

The flowers have been cut using a Cuttlebug flower die and then layered.
Sorry for awful pun in post title - only just dawned on me!
