Just Add Ink #376...Just Add "D"

Its time for new Just Add Ink challenge and this week Tina has suggested we all use a "D" element on our projects.

Something a little different from me this week! 
The timing for me on this challenge was perfect, as l had been asked by a friend to create a "Special" Birthday card for her Nan. The prerequisites were "Yellow & Daisies" being her fave colour and flower.

A perfect project for giving my "Daisy Delight" bundle a workout and attempting a "Cascading" card.  If you google "Cascading card" there are heaps of tutorials, but just be aware that the one you are using works with the cardstock size for your region.
The colours l've used are Whisper White, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach &Gumball Green.

In hindsight, l probably should have used longer strips for the grass..:0)

And of course a special card needs a special form of delivery!

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to check out the fab array of "D" projects from the design team.

Thanks for stopping by!
All supplies used are Stampin Up!
