Darling Dasies CAS - Whimsy DT

Happy Thursday all! Hope you are all well and looking forward to a great weekend! Just one more day to go, hehe =). I hope to spent some time this weekend at the beach. Forecast says it's going to be nice. Looking forward to a nice long walk....I so enjoy walking on the beach. It clears my mind and is totally relaxing.
For my card today I used one of the new and aswesome Whimsy rubber stamp sets called Darling Daisies from Chrissies collection. This is a fantastic set and was just the perfect stamp for my One Layer Card. This is very unusual and virgin soil for me but I so wanted to try this. And what is also new for me is to color on kraft CS. I used Pencils (I use Prismas, Colorsoft and Polychromos) & OMS. I saw this technique on a few blogs lately including my DT sister Ann's blog. And I loved the way it looked. I had to give it a try. And this is what my card looks like:

The sentiment is also from the Darling Daisies set and the ribbon from my stash. But I had to use a little bling so I added Stickles to the flower centers.

Here's a close-up.

I like to enter this card into the Less is More: One Layer Card w/ the theme of a flower or tree challenge.

Thanks for taking the time and dropping by today. Hope you like my card even if it's a complete different style to what I'm usually doing, LOL. 

Hugs to all and have a great rest of the week and weekend.
I'll be back after the weekend ;-)
