Daisy Keepsake for Me

I hit a few challenges today that motivated me to make something for...

well... me. ;)

No one else would appreciate it as much.

See the Gerbera Daisy header on my blog? 

That's a picture of the flowers my husband gave me one year. ;)

Here's what's left of that gorgeous orange-faded to coral...

all dolled up.

I pressed that flower in a phone book lined with paper towels and laminated it after it was dry.

It's been sitting amongst my crafties for almost 2 years!

Now it's been paired with piercing, a combo of colors, and embossing.

The challenges that motivated me to DO SOMETHING with this daisy:
