Happy first day of Spring!! This week at Allsorts challenge it's all about "Spring Flowers", so perfect for this week, selected by Brenda. Hope you will join us this week for a chance to win a digital prize by Pinksy Doodles who is this week's sponsor.
Daffodils are my favorite early spring flowers (right along with snowdrops) and I couldn't resist the offer of this pretty daffodil image to use this week from our sponsor Pinksy Doodles.

I printed the image onto Neenah 80lb card stock then colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. The image has been fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors.
To make the background, I masked the edges using Washi tape then inked with Tattered Rose Distress ink and an ink blending tool.
After removing the washi tape, I stamped a script border stamp on the bottom edge (retired stamp from Whimsy Stamps - alternative option with a different text) using Versafine Onyx ink.
Sentiment is from Penny Black's set Eloquence which is a great set for all kinds of non-birthday cards. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx ink as well and then die cut using a circle Nestabilities die in my Big Shot machine.
Before adhering the image with foam tape, I tied some natural jute twine around the card. To complete the card, I used a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush on the flowers, but it's not showing up well in the photos.
