Fresh as a Daisy

Hello and happy April Fool's Day!
Oh, and happy Friday too!

I don't know where the expression "fresh as a daisy" came from, but I could probably google it and find out. Why not "fresh as a daffodil" or "fresh as a tulip"? My card today is yellow and white and has a fresh springy look to it, so I think the expression fits this card perfectly.

When you want to create a card with a fresh, clean feeling, you cannot go wrong with white.  Add a pastel color or two and you are home free.  I used the Grateful Bunch stamp set, along with a couple of the images from Timeless Textures.  Both stamp sets are in the Occasions catalog.  For the collage background I used Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, So Saffron, and Crumb Cake.  I stamped the flowers in Crumb Cake on So Saffron card stock, then punched them out with the Blossom Bunch Punch, which you can get in a bundle with the stamp set for just $33.00 (item #  140801).
I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso.  The Elegant Dots embossing folder adds a pretty touch of texture to the folded-back panel.  

If you would like the directions and measurements for this card, where the front of the card folds back on itself and the focal panel hangs over the fold, just email me.....  and I'll send them along to you.  

Are you busy thinking up an April Fool's trick to play on someone?  Honestly, I wish I had time for such silliness, but I'm busy designing my One-Sheet Wonder class that's coming up on April 9th at 1 pm.  I still have four open spots, so let me know if you'd like to attend.   

I hope the weekend ahead is just what you need... quiet and relaxing or brimming with activity and fun.
Hugs and happiness!
