Citrus Blooms

Something bright and floral today, using a magazine freebie stamp that I got ages ago and never used, it's Pink Petticoat and has been coloured with Promarkers.  I used SeeDees stamps and Squeezed Lemonade and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks to create a border round the edge of the topper, then added weeny gems to the flower centres and glazed the tiny heart with Glossy Accents.
 The patterned and plain papers are all Papermania, with some navy pearl cardstock thrown in for matting, I used a Martha Stewart border punch to add a bit of interest to one of the layers.
The flowers and leaves were made with my favourite Woodware punches, I just love making daisies!  I used coloured paper, but also inked the petals very gently, and I used micro beads for the centres.
To finish, I used orange spotty, grosgrain ribbon, a bow, and a stamped tag topped with a yellow pearl.
