Daisy Silhouette

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW#145 Inspiration Photo
SCS Clean and Simple - Silhouette Card

This week we have an inspiration photo for our Flutterby Wednesday challenge to use with your butterfly, fairy or angel. Isn't that a gorgeous scene of daisies against the blue sky?  It reminded me of the Stampin' Up! set Upsy Daisy.  One of my son's teachers has been sick and in the hospital.  I had her in mind as I made this card and I plan to send it to her today.  I clear embossed the flowers on a piece of Sparkle Blanc cardstock, then brayered over them with my Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor ink pad.  I {heart} how the sparkle shows through the ink giving me a glittery blue sky.  I chose yellow for the butterflies and frame because of the yellow daisy centers in the photo.   I used Solar Yellow Pearlescent paper that has a wonderful pearly sheen and gives such an elegant touch in a simple way.  And finally, the sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. 

Thanks for fluttering by today and I hope you'll get inspired with us at Flutterby Wednesday this week!
