Here comes Spring...

Hi all

I coloured a piece of white card with a variety of yellow inks and used this as my background which  I embossed with CE Dottied Daisies folder. Then I swiped pearl lustre gilding polish over the top to give it a lovely sheen. ( I hope I captured this in the photos)

The focal image was stamped with CE Dandelion Meadow in black  ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut the image out with SW Innsbruck die and then created a mat for it from black card from the same die set.

Its nice to see my daffodils in my garden, their colour inspired me to do this card.  I just hope the rain stops and the sun shines a I need to get out in the garden to mow the lawn.

Have a great week everyone and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
