Guest Designer for A Spoonful of Sugar this week

I was so happy to be asked to be this weeks Guest Designer for A Spoonful of Sugar challenge, thanks so much for asking me :)

The challenge this week is to make a shaped card, so ever predictable, I have gone for (another) round card lol - I just love making them. I had a good rummage through the neglected papers that never seem to see the light of day and went for something completely different. I'm not sure if the black works with the sweet innocence of Daisy - the jury is still on this one lol.
sugar-nellie-daisy-asof-gd1
I cut the card and mat freehand, the scalloped mat is done with scalloped scissors.

Recipe
Sugar Nellie Daisy coloured with Distress Inks and H2O's
Paper is Dovecraft (from a pack that I got last year and can never remember the name, think it's Amethyst something or other)
The ribbon is Martha Stewart and the flowers are Prima
The daisy charm which is so perfect for this cute image is from the lovely Julie, thanks honey xxx

Thanks for looking,
