Birthday Daisies ~ HSS293, SSC182

Hello stampers!  We have a new color challenge for you over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  To help me in making my design team card I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps 182.
I decided to go literal with the sketch and use my Delightful Daisies set.  I stamped two daisies for each flower, using Tuxedo Black memento ink, but stamping off once so the ink wasn't so black.  It stamped more like a dark gray, which goes with the color challenge much better.  I colored the daisies with my Daffodil Delight blends markers and punch them out with the Daisy punch.  

For the background, I sponged Pool Party ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then stamped it with the Hardwood background stamp inked in Smokey Slate.  I like the country feel.  I was wishing I had the Smokey Slate gingham ribbon to continue the country feel, but I don't, so I went with an older striped grosgrain ribbon instead for a little bit of embellishment.

I hope you'll join us over at HSS for this fun color challenge and remember as always our challenges last for two weeks!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
