Friendship card

My card today is for two challenges

the first is the ColourQ challenge where they give us these colours

and next is Stampin' Royalty where they have this sketch

Here's what I came up with

The edges of the DSP were sponged with some gray ink to soften them. The daisy panel is raised on 3D pads for added dimension, and the finishing touches are white pearl gems in the centres of the flowers and black Lotus Pendant.

Recipe :
Card = Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Crushed Curry ( I don't have More Mustard ), Dusty Durango, and white card base from my stash
Stamps = Upsy Daisy, and Basic Phrases
Inks = Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Sahara Sand, and Gray Pro Marker
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Lotus Pendant, Readicut flower punches, Martha Stewart border punch, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = SU DSP and White Pearl gems

I absolutely love the flowers in Upsy Daisy, they look great as silhouettes and even better in colours. What do you think?

The next 2 weeks are going to be a little busy for me, as I'm looking after my friend Rita's 91year old Mum, Angela,  so she can have a holiday. The way I feel at the moment I think Angela will be looking after me!!!!! so we'll see how things go.

I hope I get chance to do some crafting, so please bear with me AGAIN.
