Daffodils - Enjoy Your Day

Today I have made a daffodil card.

This beautiful image is called Daffodils and Butterfly by Delicious Doodles.  I digitally added the sentiment which was a freebie from Desert Diva (thank you, Hannelie) and then coloured the image with pencils and fussy-cut.  I started the card by covering a white card base with daffodil paper that I got from Free Craft Downloads (thank you) and a strip of embossed green cardstock.  Next I affixed the image with foam tape and added a daffodil tag that I got as a freebie from Lilac & Lavender (thank you, Megan), onto which I attached a shiny butterfly with a yellow brad and stapled green ribbon.  Lastly I embellished with a metal butterfly charm, to which I added a bow tied with orange string.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp, digi sentiment, digi paper:  Described above
  • Coloured pencils: Prismacolor
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Baby's Breath
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Butterfly charm, shiny butterfly, brad, string:  Dollarama

Love all the daffodils and your pretty butterflies

When I first saw this card KT, I obviously thought of spring time. Then I saw your sentiment was 'Thank You' and I immediately thought what a wonderful card to receive, perhaps as a thank you for a Christmas gift. In the darker days of winter how lovely it would be to receive this reminder that Spring is on its way. The cheery daffodils on both your card and tag, the pretty butterflies and everything complimented with the fresh green in your ribbon and daffodil backing paper all add up to a beautiful card. Good luck in our challenge. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

I like the creative use of the tag with additional daffodils on it. You've got me thinking of other ways to use that... Thanks for sharing your project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge at Aud Sentiments.
