ALOHA FLOWERS :: A DAY FOR DAISIES

  My DT showcase card for the A Day for Daisies store features 4 images :


They have been merged to form a little bouquet - isn't it pretty? 

I coloured the flowers with Copic marker, and then sewed on 2mm seed beads as embellishments:
Also used are:

white cardstock card base
purple mat - distressed edges - scissor chomp method
recoloured peel off sentiment - was gold, but I 'painted' it with a purple nail part pen
