For today's TLC Joan asked us to use a very large element on our cards, combined with a very small one.
I used a Sizzix Daisy die for my big element - it always seems to dominate the card because of its sheer size. And I added a little ladybird - with the colour contrast it has extra impact for its size.
5 3/4" square base - old MME paper over-stamped with IO Greenery in Peeled Paint. I sponged the edges with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.
Leaf is Spellbinders. I might add some stitch lines or something, I tried embossing them and sponging them, but embossing made them so fragile that they just tore. I know they need a little something, but I was doing well to get a card made at all today...
Daisy is cut from Basic Grey paper and sponged a bit with Scattered Straw. The second layer is folded a bit along the crease lines and popped up on foam, and I used Flower Soft for the centre. Sentiment is DeNami.

Oh Sabrina, you have used one of my favorite flowers.. How Beautiful! It's balanced perfectly, with the placement of the fern, flower and little ladybug! love the softness of the flower color against the bg print!

Oh, those BIG elements countered with the little RED ladybug. I love this card with the die cuts, Sabrina. (Here they are not ladybirds, but ladybugs. We have some in our upstairs bath now. The seem to favor the west side!)
