Daisy & Dandelion challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. The girls and I had a lovely time in sunny Cambridge visiting my brother and sister-in-law. My sister-in-law is pregnant and has just had her first scan so we were able to tell the girls and show them the first photo of their new cousin! They were very excited as you can imagine!!

Now on to my card!! This is for the challenge this week on the Daisy & Dandelion challenge blog. The challenge was to use circles on the card, as well as Daisy & Dandelion products. This gave me the perfect excuse to play with my lovely new nestabilites!!!

The image and sentiment are both stickers, backed with white card, cut out and inked with pink fluid chalk. The papers are from the Daisy & Dandelion Picnic Patch collection.

I've also had a play with various embossing folders!! I used swiss dots for all the circles. The pale pink circles are from cor'dinations card stock which I then sanded, the dark pink circles were wiped over with pink fluid chalk (Colorbox, Orchid Pastel).

The large scalloped circle was embossed using the Perfectly Paisley folder. I then coloured over it with Dovecrafts Shimmer Chalks in a pale pink. I used a wet paint brush to try and make the colour a bit stronger.

Finally, I embossed my dark pink flower (it was a plain one from a large pack at Lakeland and looked a bit boring!!). I used the Floral Fantasy embossing folder for this!

Thanks for looking!!
