Paper pieced daisy

Hi, the rain has slowed down here for now luckily! January has been extreme to say the least, bushfires in some areas and floods in others! Hope everyone in those affected areas is doing ok. The creek is up in the paddocks opposite our place, but it'll  go down quickly again if we get no more rain.

Didn't seem to worry the kangaroos near our driveway!!
Simon Says Stamp has a paper piecing challenge this week. It's the first time I've done this technique so I thought I'd keep it nice and simple.
The stamp is a Lucys stamp, and the date on it is 1998-2002. It's probably one of the first that I bought!!
I cut out the stamped image on cardstock, and then cut the flower parts out of scraps of designer paper. I enjoyed all the fussy cutting, but the glueing with glossy accents was tricky!! Probably should've used a bigger stamp!
Materials used: Lucys stamp; Swiss dots embossing folder; Memory Box wisteria card base; glossy accents; Crystal stickles; scrap card and sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for looking :)
