monochromatic daisies

Is everyone ready for "back to school"? We spent all of yesterday shopping for school clothes. We had the supplies bought, but now there is the laundry, the labeling and all that fun stuff left to do. While I hate to see summer ending, it will be nice to get back into a regular schedule. It's really hard to get up early and get off to work with the kiddos getting to sleep in!

I know! I know! It's much more hectic in the mornings when they are up and about, but I think that they are looking forward to it, too.

Now...on to what you really came here for.

I decided to combine the Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411 with the challenge at the LNS yahoo group this week. Here's what I came up with.(All ingredients are SU!)

I guess I'm on a daisy kick. It's just such a fun set to play with. For this card I used Regal Rose and Rose Red. Oh, and a touch of WW cardstock. The ribbon is the double stitched grosgrain (not the greatest bow, but I'm still working on making the larger ribbon into pretty bows), the stamp sets are Upsy Daisy and Great Friend, and I used a 1 1/4" circle punch and the scalloped border punch. If you want more detailed instructions, leave me a comment and let me know. Tell me what you think! And remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!
