Daisy - Spring Has Sprung Card

Hello Everyone, Thank you for all your kind comments and messages, I feel a little better, still quite wiped out but slowly getting back on my feet.
I also want to say a HUGE WELCOME and HELLO to my new followers, I can’t tell you what it means to me to read your comments.

Anyway onto today’s card, using one of my favourite stamps (again) Daisy from Funky Kits, made using Back to Basics papers and coloured with Pro-markers, and chalks, I have also made a flower arrangement (my first ever) using Mulberry Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts – some people can make these look wonderful on cards so I bought a few ages ago, and have used the odd one here and there, but never done an arrangement but thought I would give it a go, I think I still prefer my plain and simple cards but maybe will use some of these on special cards that I make boxes for as they make the cards very 3D. (the flowers are more purple then they look). This colour combo makes me think of Purple Crocuses, which I love because once I start seeing them on the grass verge at the side of the roads I know spring is on its way!
