Happy Birthday Daisies

Anybody ready for spring yet?  I know all of you back east that have been buried in snow this year are ready!  Well maybe this card will at least bring Spring to you for a moment.  I made this card following one of the sketches at RAQ's Challenge on the Cricut message board and also the theme this week is "anything goes" at Penny's Challenges, my first time entering this challenge.  Then one more challenge that you may want to check out that I am entering this in is My Grafico Crafts they have some great images and other goodies there also.
 Once I saw the background paper in my Best of K & Company stack, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  The daisies were cut from MS Elegant Cake Art cartridge and then sprayed them with Glimmer Mist to give them a little sparkle.  For the centers I covered them with Glossy Accents then when it was about 3/4 of the way dry I place tiny pearls on them.  The happy birthday is a stamp from Stampin Up.
I like the way the pearls look sitting on top of the Glossy Accents, but looking at the picture it looks like I should have put one more on :).

I am glad you stopped by and truly look forward to reading your comments.

Absolutely Stunning, Donna. Love the daisies and the pearls. I went to Michael's today hunting Flower Soft. They didn't know what I was talking about.LOL Guess more research in needed.
