A Spring Flower

 I used the very pretty new Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers 4 stamp/die set from their newest release, Sunny Days Ahead, to make a card...
 These flowers have such classic beauty!! I had tried this flower in a variety of layouts with different papers and techniques, but I opted for a CAS card with a classic look and lots of white...it made me happy!!   I chose the gerbera daisy(loved the daisy image and it's stand-alone-size) and my MISTI to stamp, then color, then stamp again and emboss.  I stamped the flowers and leave with Simon's Smoke ink.  I colored the images, dried, then put the paper back in the MISTI, used my embossing bag, then stamped again with versamark and embossed with gold powder.  I LOVE this technique and I LOVE my MISTI(how did we survive so long without this amazing invention??!!)!  I layered them and adhered them to a stitched rectangle die cut(thought the stitched lines went with theh flower and leaves!).  The sentiment is one of my current favorites...it seems to be perfect on so many cards!  Here's a close up...
Hope you are having a good day wherever you may be today...stay safe!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
