Ever wonder where the heck they come up with flower names?! LOL
Today we are at day 3 and featuring the Chrysanthemum (would hate to get that word in a spelling bee!!!!)

My first card is a fun background card. Using this stamp set, I was able to randomly place my flowers and then have fun coloring the using Spectrum Nior markers. The little circle tag was just made up of various circle punches.

I used Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer pen to highlight each flower and stems with some shimmer. I tried to get a good picture for you. (click and make it a little bigger)

My next is really easy to do using the Ultimate Crafter's Companion again. No measuring needed, the best kind of card, lol. 

Here it is popped up.
