Cute Daisy May - Lavender and Lace

Happy Monday,
It's time for another theme at Cute Daisy May Challenge and this time it was chosen by Design Team member Wendy.
You can see her wonderful work at her blog, Crafty Butterfly.

I found a couple of challenges to go along with this one.

Design Dollies wanted Vintage
Everybody Art wanted a Thank You card
Moving Along With the Times had a sketch and a Childhood Memories theme
Sweet Stamping had a Floral Fantasy!
Daring Cardmakers had a theme of Feburary's Birthstone; Amethyst
Cupcake Inspiration helped with the colors
Paper Jewels had their 1st challenge and it is "Cute and Girly"
Pinkle Art wanted Roses
Crafty Cardmakers wanted Digital Delights

I chose this image of Daisy gardening from Sheet 167 and colored her with Copic's, the list of colors is below. I cut her with a Label Nestie.
I used a selection of dp and inked all the edges to enhance the Vintage feel.
I also used the new Paper Lace Martha Stewart punch along with her Doily Lace border punch.
The flowers came from the fantastic Wild Orchid Crafts.I'd seen the UK ladies using these in adundance and just had to give them a try. They are super flowers and were shipped really fast, less than one week from ordering to receiving, can't get better!
The sentiment is from a Studio G $1 set.

Inside is more dp and a message mat.

Here is Daisy and the colors I used.
Skin: R00, R01, E93
Hair: E13, E15, E17
Tree: G40, G82, G94
Leaves : G94
Bow: BV0000, BV01, BV04
Overalls: BV00, BV01, BV04
Gloves: G21, G99
Flowerpot: E35, E37
Dirt: E29, E59
Watering Can and Shovel: C1, C3, C5
Flowers: BV08, V17
Hearts and Butterflies: V01
Other pot: YR00, YR01, YR02
Outlined in C00

I'd love to see your take on the Lavender and Lace theme at the Cute Daisy May Challenge, you may be our winner!
