Daffodils

Morning peeps, hope you are having a good day.

I have a quick card today to share with you.  Yesterday I found out I had won over at Pattie's Creations and one of the prize images I chose was this wonderful daffodil circle.  I could not resist today making a card with it - think I must be eagerly waiting for Spring as this is the second daffodil card I have made this week.

Several mats on this card to give great height and I finished off by embossing the top layer with a Tattered Lace embossing folder.  Next I added a couple of swirl die cuts - Cherry Lyn b127 Tropical Flourish in yellow card and a doily die by Tonic using green gingham vellum.  The image was coloured with Promarkers.  I printed the image at 50% opacity as I wanted to go over some of the drawing lines with my green Promarker. I also added the sentiment before printing.  Finally a lemon yellow satin bow and some buttons were added to complete my creation.
The inside of the card was finished off with a strip of the patterned paper I used for the front of the card and another Tonic doily cut in the vellum which I then cut into two pieces.  A wee bit of yellow ribbon to carry the yellow through to the inside of the card and all done.
Ingredients :-

  • Image - Daffodil Circle Scroll by Patties Creations
  • Colouring Medium - Promarkers
  • Dies - Cherry Lyn b127 Tropical Flourish and Tonic Doily
  • Embossing Folder - Butterflies by Tattered Lace
  • From my stash - yellow ribbon, vellum, ribbon, chalk and buttons
I am entering this card in the following challenges:-
