A New Beginning - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #451

We all wish for a new beginning, especially at times like this, when a virus is destroying the world as we know it.

In addition, the calendar says Spring, but one look out the window makes that a lie!  The snow, although light, is most unwelcome.

Regardless, I wanted to reflect Spring and a new beginning, by creating 3D Daisies, on the card I made for the sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #451.  The sketch is a throwback to Sketch #98 

This card, with a Mint Macaron base, if 5 by 5" and is layered with Whisper White and then 2 pieces of the new Ornate Garden DSP.

The larger piece has a Mint Macaron background with gold embossing; the smaller piece has Daisies all over it - thus my inspiration.

The Dollie die is non SU, and what attracted me to this die is the small Daisy-like flowers in the center of each scallop edge.  On the Doillie are added 3 Daisies - one large and 2 small.

The Large Daisy is made from Whisper White card stock using the Daisy punch.  Daffodil Delight ink is applied to the petals of  the two punched flowers and some Soft Suede in the center.  Each flower is shaped using a stylus, adhered together alternating petals, and a Perennial Floral Center added to each flower.

The small Daisies are made using the small Daisy punch, where the two punched flowers are treated the same way as the large Daisy.

A flower is not complete without a leaf.  So, each flower has a leaf punched using  the Leaf Punch.The Old Olive leaves are sponged with Old Olive ink, shaped and added to each Daisy.

Both completed Daisies are adhered to the Doillie as depicted in the picture.

To finish the card, Gilded Gems are added randomly to the sentiment and card base.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Morning Star (sentiment)
Inks: Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Soft suede, Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Papers:  Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Ornate Garden DSP, Old Olive
Accessories:  Daisy Punch, Small Daisy Punch, Leaf Punch, Perennial Floral Centers, Gilded Gems, Doillie (non SU)
