Color Dare #60

I decided to play with some nice bright colors on this dreary, rainy Monday morning! This is an inspiration piece for the color challenge at Color Dare.

I used a stamp set from Heartfelt Creations, which my DD left here for me on her last trip home. This company usually has a booth at my semi local stamp show in Allentown, PA., and I am looking forward to checking out some of their new items. They have amazing new flower stamps that fit right in some of the new Nestabitities shapes, and they make gorgeous creations. Anyhow, I colored the petal stamps with Marvy markers and then used OMS with pencils to add some shading and highlights. The sentiment is also from this set. I tried to find it on their site so I could link it, but it is possible it has retired. My designer papers are from Memory Box's Glitterati series. I popped up the petals on their outer edges to add some dimension. I used a large white daisy folded in half and some red buttons with twine as my accents. What do you think?
