You can see I’ve done 3 cards using different colors from the Color Theory…

Daisy Delight, Coneflower

The Daisy Delight is probably one of my favorite bundles in the new catalog. You also save 10% when you purchase the bundle, stamp set and matching punch.

I love this look. My Stamp Club Gals will be making this…
