Well, it’s almost spring! I’m ready. We have a few daffodils in bloom on our side yard and the weather is, some days, warming up a bit. When I saw the colors for this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project, I knew I would create a card with daffodils using the You’re Inspiring stamp set.

Design Notes for You’re Inspiring Card:

Well, I think this card just screams “Spring”, don’t you? It was pretty easy to put together. I used Gold Heat Embossing Powder for the daffodils and then colored them in with Daffodil Delight Blends. I don’t have Lemon Lime Twist Blends (they haven’t made them) so I used Granny Apple Green. Hopefully,  I’ll be forgiven for this little ‘cheat’. The Detailed Trio Punch was an easy way to add a little detail to the front piece and proved to be a handy way to add some ribbon. For just a little more texture, I embossed the Grapefruit Grove piece with the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I don’t have a sentiment on the card. I might add something later, likely an Easter sentiment or perhaps birthday.
