Daisy Box Card

The inspiration for this card came from a friend being in hospital and not being able to have flowers bought into the ward.  I'm not sure whether this was specific to her or whether these are new hospital rules?!?!?!?

I came up with the idea of combining a bouquet of flowers with her card and here is the outcome.

The cardstock is from the Paper Mill Shop, the spotted paper is from Forever Friends and is from the Pink Parfait set and the striped paper is from Doodlebug Designs and is called cupcake sweet stripes.

The edges of the spotty paper and the doily have both been finished off with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Weathered Wood.

The image used is from Elisabeth Bell and is called Daisy and has been coloured with Promarkers.

The flowers and beads were sourced from either my local market stall or Wild Orchid Crafts.

The label is from a Magnolia set called Heavenly Tags stamped with a sentiment inside it and coloured with Promarkers.
