I am so blessed to have wonderful friends. One of these friends is Loll of Stamping with Loll. She is a constant source of inspiration and she always shares how to do her cards. I always learn something from her blog. Recently she made some card candy. I was a lucky recipient and couldn't wait to use it.
Isn't this daisy amazing? The sponging on the petals and the center with the glitter is beautiful!
I thought it would be perfect for the Muse challenge this week. This week's Muse is Jen Mitchell and this is the card she created for our inspiration.
I love this layout with the rounded corners on the top and how the design piece is dropped to the bottom of the card. I was also inspired by the colors.
Edited to add that I was so excited to get a card done that I forgot a couple of challenges.
CCEE Stampers Challenge 1318 want us to make it shimmer. Do you see the glitter in the center of the daisy?
Simon Says Stamp is looking for Happy Mail.
It was happy mail when I received these daisies and I hope it will be happy mail when a special friend receives this card.

It's been a crazy week and I've been Nurse Nana most of the week. Looks like everyone is on the mend and I'm looking forward to some stamping time this weekend.
I'm so glad you could stop by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
