Rainin' Daisies

'Rainin' Daisies' is one of my favourite Penny Black stamps...as it can be used for so many occasions, and coloured to match any papers. I've followed this week's Secret Crafter Challenge sketch for the layout...it's a lovely simple one, with plenty of scope for adding extra embellishments...so I'm sure I'll use it again. I decided to use just one design of paper for both layers - it's from the '29th Street Market' range by My Mind's Eye. To balance out the knot in the ribbon, I added a few cute flower shaped buttons (all from Poppicrafts)...so I'm also entering this card into this week's Simon Says Challenge, where the theme is 'Buttons & Ribbons'.


Right...I'm off to bake some cakes for a party tonight...yum!
