Foxy Daisies

After the creative whirlwind last week that was the Stampin' Dymonz 10-day Tag Challenge, I'm having some trouble going back to good ole cardmaking! As always, there is plenty of inspiration at this week's CDAC challenges. I started with the Embellishment challenge sponsored by Shannon's Sentiments & the Sketch Challenge sponsored by DigiDrawn. Not only did I have a great time making them, I'm very happy with how they came out.

For this card, I tried my hand at "warping" the sentiment in Photoshop, with okay results. I need to practice that.... I added some pink, heat-embossed detail to the flowers by using a Versamark watermark pen.

Despite appearances, part of this Sketch challenge was K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Silly), and I kinda did. You know, kinda. I really wanted to use the freebie Daisy image by DigiDrawn for the corner element, so I used her Fox digi to complement it.
