Lillies, Daisies, Tulips, Daffodils - Springtime Flowers Everywhere!

Happy Easter everyone.  
For my followers who are waiting to see Layla in her Easter finery....
Yes, I did take pictures of my 2 month old great granddaughter in her Easter outfit (including the sweater and booties I crocheted),  but I am saving them to post tomorrow.   So you'll have to come back then.

I have just a bit of time between family festivities today to share a few flowers with my crafty friends. 

For this card first I printed this A Day For Daisies digi image on white CS.   Next I drew a rectangle a bit smaller than the image and colored the entire background within the rectangle black.  Then I and cut around it and the one flower that extended beyond.  I mounted the image on the yellow checked DP background, again a bit smaller than the image.  I stamped the sentiment in white ink on black and gave it and the image a spritz of frost shimmer mist.  And when I opened the ribbon drawer, the polka dot satin ribbon just about leaped out at me. 


I am entering this in the following challenges:
A Day For Daisies Challenge #94 -  Stripes  (I was a bit concerned the chevron pattern might not qualify for the "stripes" theme, but I looked it up and the definition of chevron is "stripes meeting at an angle".  So this should do just fine.)
A Gem of a Challenge #117 - Spring is in the Air (I left the lily I brought home from church on the front porch and you can smell it as soon as you go near.  What a wonderful springtime scent!  My lily bulbs are just starting to emerge from the ground.)
Digi Galore Challenge - Flowers 
Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #146 - Flowers
Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge #25 - Frame It
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge #63 - Spring
Creative Corner Challenge - What's in a Name?  Since my first name is Debi, I've used a Digi image of Daisies
Digi Haven Challenge - Black and White with one other Color (Yellow)
PolkaDoodles Challenge Week 16 - Springtime
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - A card with the word 'Happy'

And now I am going to my mother's and totally forget I'm on a diet!

Enjoy the rest of your day.
