Stampin' Up! Garden in Bloom CCMC364

I am back with another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary. I love black with any color so this was fun for me! 

Garden in Bloom Stampin' Up!  stamp set. Strawberry paper with daisy and bee. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
Strawberry season is over around here (I think), but this paper from the Sweet Li'l Things collection never goes out of season. I wanted to create a flower or group of flowers that resembled strawberry blossoms but I ended up with a daisy - like flower from the new set, Garden in Bloom - and a few little Crushed Curry flowers for balance. 

The top of my card is embossed with the Hexagon embossing folder to go along with the bee. Then I added a strip of Crushed Curry washi tape from the Cherry on Top collection. I couldn't decide on a sentiment or where to place one so I used the new Greetings Thinlits and added a little hello. I love the size of these thinlits and really hope Stampin' Up! comes up with more of these fun sentiments in this size.

I can't forget the center of my daisy! It is a White Perfect Accent that I colored with a Sharpie. I have a lots of different Sharpies and I am so glad I didn't sell them at our tag sale last year because now I can create accents in a variety of colors. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

So glad that you listed what stamp set the flower was because I didn't recognize it and see that it is obviously a must have! So pretty!

Your card reminds me of a summer strawberry patch! SO lovely. The little bees are beautiful! :)
