Mark's Finest Papers


For my card I used another embosssed-pounded flowers paper. I cut the daisies out and about every 3 petals I cut all the way to the center so that I could shape the petals. I then added a drop of hot glue to the centers and colored the glue with a brown marker. The big butterfly is from a Mark's Finest Paper set called Daffodil Greetings and the little one is from this months set called Scenic Selections.

When I was thinking of songs to share with this card, this is what came to my mind. It made me think of my grandma, who used to sing it to me.
