Daisy for a Friend

Hi everyone.  My card today is for two challenges ... SCS Queen for a Day (QFTD160 - bon2stamp) where my friend Bonnie is being honored ... and CAS-ual Fridays (CFC98 - All that glitters).

I made a card to honor Bonnie, CASE'ing this beauty ... keeping the layout and basic feel of the original, but didn't add the dry embossing to the background.  I used one of my latest card candy large daisies in place of Bonnie's beautiful stamped and layered flower.  Hope you like, Bonnie and congratulations on being picked as Queen for the Day!  Thanks for all the inspiration you have given me ... as well as your wonderful and supportive comments.  Enjoy your special week!!

For the glitter part ... I've added just a little glitter to the center of the flower and on the madera corner to make it special.

Stamps:  Garden Oasis (Fiskars)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs and Neenah); Daffodil delight, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Giant Daisy Punch (Punch Bunch); Medium and Small Sun Punches (Punch Bunch), Madera Corner Die (Memory Box), sponges, stylus and mat, tweezers, scoring tool, blender pen, glue, and dimensionals

The 3-D daisy is made as per my tutorial, just changing up the center (sponged edges of the sun rays, cut them in half, shaped with my stylus and glued three layers of each size), and adding green glitter glue to the very center of the flower.

I scored a line above the sentiment (hard to see in photo), stamped the sentiment in black and used my blender pen and Wild Wasabi ink to color in the leaves.  I added more green glitter glue to the Madera corner before placing the daisy on top.

Here's a close-up of the flower:

HI Loll, I ordered the punch today, hopefully it is the right size, I have two other sizes, and from what I see, they don't have or don't make any other larger size than the one I ordered anymore, they did not show any available, even on Punch Bunch's web site. Plus I ordered another sun punch I did not have. Hopefully I will then be set.

Thanks for all your help.
