Another painted daisy

Hello Friends,

My regular followers will remember that I did a couple daisy water colour paintings last week. I made one of them into a card today.
The dove came from an old Christmas card. You are seeing the back of it, which I painted. My trim is cotton crochet thread, strung with green sequins.
I got a little splotch of paint on my daisy so I turned it into a lady bug. Mistakes in art are just opportunities for more creativity. So next time you make a boo-boo in your crafting, give it some extra thought before you toss it out. You will probably think of something to make your original design even better.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
