Daffodil Delight ...

Mondays are my least favourite day of the week ... it is so long before the weekend!  I must stop wishing my life away!  On my return from work I have managed to create this:

This is a top folding card combining stamping, embossing, water colouring and die cutting - so many stages for such a simple card.  I've been concentrating on sentiments for the last two cards I've made so this evening I decided to let the images do the talking! Daffodils are all about Spring and Easter for me ... and sunshine yellow can't help but make you smile.

I used:
STAMPlorations - The Birds and the Blooms
Lawn Cuts - Stitched Rectangles
Dienamics - Inside/Out Stitch Squares
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron
Stampendous White Detai Embossing Powder
Stampin Up - Gorgeous Grunge

I'm entering the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps #184 Clean and Simple

Stamping Sensations March Challenge - Flower Power

STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge


Popped back this evening to link up to the current STAMPlorations CAS challenge

Keep Enjoying!
