Happy Birthday with Lili of The Valley!

It's a new week and a new card!
This time we are going into the garden to make some Daisy Chains! I remember fondly going to the park as a little girl and being taught how to make Daisy Chains and I carried on making them even as a teenager at lunchtime at school sitting on "the bank" at Arnold Hill School!
So this image was a must have as soon as I saw it

Card Recipe:
Image - Daisy Chain by Lili of The Valley
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper and Border - Martha Stewart Vintage Girl
Woodgrain Fence Die - My Favorite Things
Heart Square Die - Spellbinders Heart Squares
Flowers - Recollections
Buttons - Unknown
Ribbon - Wrights
Sentiment - Imaginisce Birthday Bash Snag 'Em Stamp - For Me?
Embossing Folder - Daisies by Crafts Too
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal

I made a big rosette using my Scor-Pal, I got the idea from a card I saw on Stampin Mindy's blog but I wanted to use a border punch on the edge so mine is deeper/more raised up. But as I rarely mail my cards I'm not worried about it not fitting in an envelope :)
