Daisy Silhouettes

It's turned out to be a beautiful day on the Westcoast.  It was cloudy this morning, so hubby and I headed out for breakfast to IHOP.  Good start for the day!!  After getting back home and taking a walk around the neighborhood, I headed outside to work in the garden.  Have to take advantage of the sunshine since it's hasn't been around much lately!!  All this means that I didn't have much time for the challenge today.  I started a little while ago and was hurrying to get it done before game time.  Game seven of the Stanley Cup finals is tonight!!!  GO CANUCKS GO!!
Here's a picture and the details of the card.  Hope you like.
"Daisy Silhouettes"
Stamps:  Upsy Daisy
Paper:  Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden Designer series (retired)
Ink:  Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery
Accessories & Tools:  Sponges, Sizzix Square Lattice embossing folder, three light blue half-pearls
* * * * *
I sponged the bottom 1/3 of the main image panel with Certainly Celery and sponged the top 2/3 with Baja Breeze.  I inked my stamp with Night of Navy and stamped the image at the bottom and then did a second and third generation stamping up above so it looks like a field of daisies.

I ran a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder and used it as the background for the sketch.

I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, popping up the main panel with dimensionals and adding three half-pearls.
