Daisy Chain

Well after a craftless day yesterday, I'm back today with a card that I've been working on all week!!!!!!

This card has been made from the sketch at "A Gem of a Challenge" and can be found here.  They've also got a DT call at the moment so guess who's gonna try her luck and have a go? (Loudly tapping my fingers) have you guessed yet?? It's MEEEEEEEEEE :-)  Wish me luck!!

I've tried another one of the things on my "to do" list again for this card and that's stamping onto acetate with white StazOn and using it as an overlay on the card (see picture below).  Please excuse my huge great big thumb although you get a good picture of my new nail art that I had done yesterday afternoon, well I did say I was very busy didn't I ;-)

It's quite difficult to photograph when you've used acetate so it is slightly darker than the actual card as I've had to angle it away from the light so that I don't get any reflections.  Here you go:

Materials used:
Stamp - daisy chain
Coloured with promarkers
Backing paper - First Edition - spring feast
Sentiment - Janes' Script
Stamp - doilies (bought off ebay)
Stamped with cotton white StazOn onto acetate
Distress ink - tumbled glass
Mica powder - pearls & pastels (on the doily stamp under the sentiment)
Liquid pearls - pastel raspbery (for the flower centres)
Doily & blue card from my stash

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - sketch - DT
Lili's Little Fairies - bear essentials - TOP 3
Papertake - in the garden
Whimsy Stamps - anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - anything goes
