Nancy McKinney has illustrated another gorgeous Petite set in the Bouquet series - this is Daisy Bouquet, a set of 6 stamps for the Whimsical Wishes line.



I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  The papers are Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks 6x6 from My Mind's Eye.  This set included sentiments that coordinate perfectly with the new Mini Tags Dies, which is a set of 9 tags in super cute shapes.  I chose a more traditional tag for this card and attached it to the vase with some embroidery floss.   I sewed around the edge of the card and then added a few Black Pearls in the top corner.

Don't forget to stop by and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have created for you today:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Karen
