Daffodils

Hi everyone, a card today for A spoonfull of sugar where the challenge this week is 'Love is in the air' and for Cute Card Thursday with a challenge of 'Valentine's'. I've used one my new digi-stamps 'Daffodils' which is available at Sketching Stamper Digi-stamps and is one of eight images available from today. The image is marker coloured and mounted on coredinations card mounted on dimension tape. The background layer is yellow coredinations mounted on dimension tape which has been embossed with the CB and hearts folder and then sanded. All the edges are distressed and I've added stickles to the flowers, the ribbon, mini pearls and a yellow heart gem. TFL.

Materaials: Sketching Stamper Digi-stamp 'Daffodils, Promarkers ( in pastel yellow, mustard, gold, lemon, primrose, moss green, pastel yellow, pine, agean), yellow and dark aqual coredinations card, dark aqua canson card. Cuttlebug, hearts embossing folder. Yellow satin ribbon, yellow stickles, yellow heart gem, mini half pearls, edge distresser.

I've been given some fantastic awards this week, thank you so much ladies, they're very much appreciated but I've got myself so muddled with them and I hope you can excuse my not linking up properly, I really am rubbish at this, sorry.
















I was also tagged this week with the sixth folder, sixth photo tag, by Deifen, thank you Dei! The sixth folder contained number templates, not very interesting and so I've gone to the seventh which are garden photographs and this is one taken last year of my day lilies, I love these flowers.
