Daffodil wishes

   The theme for our new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More is Spring has sprung. Here in the spring sunshine daffodils are beginning to come into bloom, so I used this theme for my card.
   I wrapped two row of narrow ribbon round pearlised card from an empty fudge box and then matted it onto white card. I used the Tattered Lace die Kedleston scalloped oval to cut a frame from yellow core'dinations cardstock, colouring the inner oval using Promarkers. The daffodil was cut from white card using another Tattered Lace die and again coloured using Promarkers. I attached a small bow to the flower stem, a little glitter to the flower trumpets and ten mini gems to the lower of the two horizontal ribbons. Finally a formed a sentiment from peel offs.
