Wisteria and Daisies

When you have big beautiful flowers like these Prima daisies, what else do you really need on a card? My plan was to actually stamp something on this card, too, but it just didn't need it! Some beautiful DP from Basic Grey, a little gorgeous ribbon, and there you have it.
I cut a frame using Spellbinders Labels dies, popped it up with foam tape, and voila--a simple, elegant frame for the daisy. I probably could've dug through my stash to find a small birthday sentiment, or something, but I figured I could always add it when I figure out who's gonna get it! I do this a lot, and it works better for me. I can't tell you how many times I needed a card for someone, I'll be digging through my stash for just the right one, but they all have sentiments that are just 'not right'. So I usually end up ripping it apart and adding a new one, or making an entirely new card from scratch. This way is better.
Hope it inspires!
