I LOVE this week's card! Ok, here goes!

So this week at 
Coloring Down the Lines
  we are looking at some really fun colors! It's a short hop this week-everyone on vacation for the 4th! But the 3 of us here have some fun for ya!!!

So after me hop over to Robbie, then on to Helen, where you probably hopped from to get here! lol  

Here's my card:

So here's the inspiration photo:

And the colors from Stampin' Up!:
Every now & then I like to use the photo design as almost a template for my card. This week I took it literally!  The picture is daisies!!! That's my totally favorite flower!!!!  So I had to go with it!!!  I'm not actually sure the flowers on here were meant to be daisies when they forged the stamp, but that's what they are now!!!

The stamp set is Flower Patch. I kinda stamped them with the Smoky Slate. By kinda, I mean I inked up the stamp & then stamped off onto a piece of scrap paper. Made it lighter in color! I then cut out all the pieces with the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits!  Fussy cut?? No way!!! lol

The background is my new Brick Wall Embossing Folder! I LOVE it!!!! One of my fave items from the new Annual Catalog!! I thought I'd make it look a bit like the flowers were growing up the wall. Or a bunch growing in front of the wall.

The sentiment is from my current "go-to" sentiment set A Dozen Thoughts! I actually had that set last year, but never really looked at it much. When most of my sentiments retired, I had to find some new ones, so I revisited this one. Now I use it all the time! I really like it!!!  Here I sorta tried to make it look like it's a brick in the wall (I sound like Pink Floyd! lol). Now I think I should have distressed the edges some. But oh well. It's cute.

And as always I finished it off with a little bling-Dazzling Details-and I love my card!!! Please don't eat the daisies tho! (Wow, full of puns today! lol)

So enjoy our short little hop this week & have a fantastic and safe 4th of July! Happy Birthday USA!

Happy Stampin'!
