PTI Blog Hop - Sweet Spring

Hi everyone! I decided to get out my daffodil year of flowers set from Papertrey, Ink and participate in this month's "Sweet Spring" blog hop.

I really favor the daffodils that have the bright orange centers instead of the all yellow ones. So, that is where my inspiration came from when coloring this. Copic's used were: Y00, Y15, Y17, Y38, G24, G28.

Pale yellow cardstock is from Bazzill and I ran it through the lattice embossing folder. I felt that I needed some texture since I couldn't find any designer paper that went with the yellows in the daffodil. The big fishtail banner is from MFT, and it and the sentiment panel are layered in Harvest Gold cardstock from PTI. Since the flower is so darn big, I decided to do a bit of fussy cutting and then popped it up using foam tape.

After I got this all put together, I decided to stamp and color a daffodil bud for the inside of the card. I really like how it turned out.

Can you believe that there isn't any bling or ribbon on this card? Thought it looked better being semi CAS. Thanks for stopping by!

Beautifully done Laurie. Daffodils are one of the first things to bloom in my garden in spring. I have the orange and pink center, all white mount hood and all yellow daffodils.
