FMS135 - spring thank you

Hello! Here is my take on this week's Freshly Made Sketch. I've also added in the Spring Flowers challenge over at Simon Says Stamps.

I think my head or body was slightly tilted when I took
the picture of this card.

Sentiment is from Flourishes. Oval nesties used to cut it out and the yellow layer behind.

I used the fresh daisy die from Simon Says Stamp to create the flowers. I cut them out several times using light yellow cardstock and doubled them up using tiny foam tape. I did add a bit of ink to the edges to highlight them a bit. The leaf die is from Memory Box.

Designer paper has been in my stash for at least 10 years and I have no idea who makes it. It's a 6 x 6 pad that I've had stuck together with a binder clip because I lost the cover to it.  Does that ever happen to you? I think I need to clean out my designer paper cupboard, or at least organize it a bit.

ETA: just saw that the challenge over at Addicted to CAS is off the edge and since I'm off the edge on the leaf...

Thanks for stopping by!

I missed this on my earlier visit and just saw over at ATCAS that you had submitted it in the Off the Edge challenge! It's perfect for that and I thank you for playing! It is such a charming card, Laurie! Hugs, Darnell
