Let Yourself Go

As a child I remember sitting in my room on the floor coloring for hours.  I guess not much has changed, except I sit in a chair now and not the floor.  Something about coloring is so peaceful.  I forget about everything when I color.  Even forget to cook dinner too.  I need Paper Crafter's Anonymous.  Who wants to join me?  hehe

I found this beautiful picture on the Internet and had to try and make my pretty daisies look somewhat like these.  What do you think?  Did I do okay?
I used my golden colored glitter gel pen for the pollen.  I looked at using glitter or my Stickles, but I really need a fine tip for exact placement.
This is the sentiment I stamped on the inside.  I really didn't have room for one on the front of the card.  That is okay.  I don't mind at all.    I used Copic colors V4, V12, 0, B24.  The paper is from KandCompany/Julianne and the script is from Basic Grey/Basics Manilla.  Ranger inks Antique Linen and Vintage Photo was used to distress on the heart and Tumbled Glass for the mat behind it. 
I used the sketch at A Sketch To Try.  Jen always has great sketches.  I also made this for Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes.  The challenge is to "Button Up".  I had intended to use more buttons, but they didn't fit. 

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
