Daffodils....

Hey there!!!  Here with a card for the current Timeless Tuesday challenge.  This week the super talented Cindy is hosting the challenge and she has asked that we use scallops and lace on our projects.   When I saw the new Cardabilities sketch I knew it would be perfect for this challenge.



I used several Flourishes sets for this card (Year of Flowers 1, Orchids & Country Charm Borders).   The patterned papers are from the new The Scrap Cake 6x6 pad, My Private Happiness.  If you have never checked out The Scrap Cake, you really should.  They have some of the most beautiful patterned papers I have ever seen!   The daffodil image from YoF 1 was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored with Copic markers using the Flourishes Daffodil & Spring Greens combos (Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, Y19, YG00, YG03, & YG06) and then trimmed out.  A plain circle was die cut using a small Spellbinders plain circle die and the sentiment (from Orchids) was stamped on it using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz ink.  A scalloped circle was die cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock using a Spellbinders small scalloped circle die.   A scalloped border from the Country Charms Border set was stamped using SU!'s So Saffron ink and then trimmed out.  I used two different pieces of lace (both of which were gifts from my ODBD teamie, Sabrina) on the card, layering then as you see.  A bit of distressing was done to the main patterned paper panel, as well as the smaller strip.  After layering everything I adhered the circle and the daffodil image using foam dimensionals.  A couple of butterflies punched from the paper using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch completed the card.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Lemon Tart; PP:  The Scrap Cake; Copic Markers; Stamps:  Flourishes; Lace: unknown; Spellbinders dies; MS butterfly punch; Hero Arts gems; Ink:  SU! & Memento
