Posies for Mom

     This delightful image is the April freebie for the Progressive challenge at The Outlawz.  Right before printing this image, I was looking out my front window at the two large daisy bushes which are overflowing with pale yellow flowers everywhere.  My coloring was influenced by them.


     I colored with chalks, then die cut both the image and the mat with dies from Spellbinders.  Actually, this time it's a frame more than a mat since the smaller die cut is inlaid into the larger one.  The doily was in my last order from 7 Kids College Fund and I think they're made by Bo Bunny.

     I added only the little bow for embellishment, keeping this one CAS for mailing.
