Colour Dare 455 - Birthday Daisies

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 455! 

Yellow is the colour of the week - along with two other colours (not including black and white if you use those). 

My colour palette includes yellow, green and purple (as well as black and white). I wanted to use some daisies as they are so perfect for summer. I used a layering stencil to create the daisies. They are actually in a wreath format but I cut them apart for this card. The wreath at the bottom also has coordinating layering stencils but I chose to stamp and colour it myself. The wreath was fussy cut as I wanted the center to stay inside the wreath (the die would cut out the centre). The wreath was cut in half and placed it at the bottom of the card. The daisies were arranged around the top of the wreath and I added a sentiment and some tiny flower sequins. The centre of the sequins also have coloured bitty sparkles inside. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret the challenge shown above.
