Daisy Dots

This is my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and also for Cupcake Craft Challenge.

I only have one Penny Black stamp and this is it. It's called 'Garden Poems' so it inspired the title of the card 'Daisy Dots'.

I started with stamping the image in my favourite(at the moment!) Stazon colour - Stone Gray- and coloured it with Winsor & Newton watercolours. I then attached it to a piece of dark pink Alchemy card which had been embossed using the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder using four little green brads to make it even dottier. The alphabet beads (which come from the ELC) are tied on with a piece of rainbow cord from my stash -- I was going to put 'DAISY DOTS' but I'd run out of' T's!

The green spotty paper was made with the help of PSP, and the final embellishment is a piece of pink twill ribbon from my stash and three little Papermania flowers and brads. The base card is pale pink Alchemy trimmed to fit.
