Less is More ~ week 5 (no 2)

I decided to have another attempt at this challenge. Though I know I should step out of my comfort zone, I'm definitely more comfortable with die cuts/punching shapes. Once again the theme is daisies. Punched daisy shapes are coloured very lightly with 'tattered rose' just to give the hint of pink that daisies have, then glued together in pairs and a small circle of lemon, shaped with an embossing tool for a dome effect, in the centre. Pale green, very thin strips of card cut for stems. Daisies 'tied' together with a bow (just like we did as children to give a bunch of daisies to our mums!)
The sentiment once again generated in Publisher (I'm such a creature of habit) and printed in pale pink straight on to the white linen card and a 'cross stitch' border added.

I've used : white linen base card
                 pale lemon card and pale green card
                 Woodware small daisy punch
                 tattered rose DI
                 tiny white ribbon bow
Thanks for looking.
