More Yellow

Hey there! It's spring, I am happily digging in my garden, waiting impatiently for the flowers to bloom and I am in the mood for more yellow. So I created a card combining the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Spring Pinterest Inspiration and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge Springtime/Easter. I have a big, beautiful bunch of daffodils sitting next to my desk, so I created this card:


I started with a white cardbase and softly inked the background using light blue Distress Ink. Then I trimmed a panel of the same cardstock slightly smaller and die-cut the stitched circle from it. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment to the bottom and adhered the panel to the card. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the daffodils from PTI's Year of Flowers set onto another piece of cardstock and colored them using Distress Inks mixed with water. I cut them out and adhered them to the card. Finally, I added clear sequins.
Here are the inspiration photos of the challenges:

Have a great day everybody and thanks for visiting!

I love this design! The contrast of bright and soft is lovely...what color ink did you use to stamp the sentiment? I love the subtle greeting! Thanks for all your inspiration-sharing!
