*Gerbera Daisies*

I have a few different favourite flowers....  lilacs, peonies, tulips and Gerbera daisies.... All four of these types of flowers just make me smile.

I was checking out Pinterest this morning and found a link to a great tutorial to make beautiful Gerbera Daisies out of paper.... Just yesterday I was talking about putting some sort of paper flowers on to the "tree" I put my Christmas cards on to justify having the tree out all year long.

I was thrilled when I discovered that this turtorial uses a die I already own....  I created my own centres using large brads and copper embossing powder and  made a total of 8 daisies to start with....

Aren't they beautiful??!!!  I think I need some yellow ones next.... and maybe some more of the dark reds...
