Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled Chrysanthemum . . .
To form my easel card, I've layered blocks of Wild Rose Studio Spring Fling patterned papers with bright, coordinating smooth cardstock. A Fiskars Greek Key punched edge borders the middle of the card near the wrapped sheer orange swirls ribbon.
An EK Success punched photo corner adorns one corner of my card front. A few coordinating Basic Grey small buttons line my sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Summer by the Sea set. Larger buttons are in line under the ribbon bow near my large handmade Chrysanthemum formed from a Fiskars Oopsie Daisy, Marvy Uchida daisy, EK Success daisy and oak leaf punches. Here's a view of my card front . . .
The inside of my card holds a saying from a Stampin' Up! For Father set along with a handmade flower cluster consisting of the smaller daisy punched shapes. All flower petals and leaves are painted with Diamond Stickles or Star Dust Stickles for amazing sparkle. Here's a closer view of my flower cluster . . .

The wonderful designers At Joan's Gardens (here) are looking for six guests to showcase handmade flowers for their May 15th blog hop. Flowers can be made from dies or punches. Making handmade flowers makes me happy especially since I can make them using my project scraps so the flowers coordinate so well. If you like to make handmade flowers then head over to Joan's and submit your entry while there's still time.
