Daisy, daisy......

Have you noticed how tiny daisies in the grass are often tinged at the edge of the petals with shades of lilac / purple? I love daisies and have some beauties in the garden at the moment (& a vase or three in the house)! They are one of my favourite flowers for their simplicity and ballet tutu's of petals

I have tried to photograph this card to show the different elements, as it was difficult to see the acetate daisy.......

The happy birthday banner is simply happy birthday stamped a few times in purple on vellum, the front daisy is stamped and heat embossed in white and the back of the vellum is coloured with the same purple, the second daisy (middle one ) is stamped in purple straight onto the vellum and the top daisy is stamped in the same purple directly onto acetate and all were fussy cut (easy Peary with this daisy stamp ). 

The overall effect is different shades of the same papermania purple ink pad

I have used clear pads and a bit of collall all purpose glue as the acetate in particular is difficult to adhere without showing.  Then placed the flowers so that they are slightly off the edge of the card.
Purple is this weeks Less is More challenge
