This card I created is for a special sister-in-law and brother-in-law who are celebrating an anniversary later in March. I thought they might enjoy seeing the pretty daffodils as well as I know she especially is a big flower lover and grows the most gorgeous ones in her garden.
I used the Penny Black Daffodil Dance stamp set as well as a sentiment from the Penny Black You + Me set. The daffodils were colored direct to the stamp with some Tombow markers using my MISTI and doing repeated stampings. In between I applied a light touch of water to spread the colors and blend. Then I did a repeated stamping of the images to get the outline once again more intense. The sentiment was stamped with Gina K. Designs black ink.
The card stock I used for the main panel was then die cut with a Memory Box die and applied to a duplex card base of a spring shade of green with white inside from Crafter's Companion. The duplex card was scored using my Scor Pal which is a tool I use on every card I make almost.
The finishing touch was to add some rhinestone gems for some bling.

Well, here it is mid week already. Sounds like a bit of snow again could dust our area tonight. At least I hope it is only a dusting. But the weekend might bring a lot more. But that is Spring...one day so warm and sunny and the next cold and rainy or snowy. I only know I am sure looking forward to this new season.
Thanks for stopping in and for your wonderful comments.
