Delightful Daffodils

We're having a party over at Fairy Fun Fridays!  It's our Fairy Queen Roberta's birthday and it's the one year birthday of Fairy Fun Fridays.  We hope you will make a birthday or party themed card and join in the fun with us.  

I seem to be hooked on daffodils lately.  This is the second time I have used this delightful Daffodils image from The Prairie Fairy in the last two weeks.  A few other challenges caught my eye too as I was looking for inspiration so I shaped this card around them and about a dozen more that are calling for spring or flower themes.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.  CRE84FN has a yellow/orange/kraft theme and The Kraft Journal is doing spring fling.  

I used some yellow raffia that I edged with Rusty Hinge distress ink to make it resemble daffodils.  I got inspired and decided to make the main image a daffodil and then took it further and created my own handmade one for the corner.  I blinged it up a bit by adding some Star Dust Stickles dots.  Using a piece of crinoline, I inked it lightly with Rusty Hinge and then stamped a Tim Holtz flourish in Rusty Hinge.  Then I ran it through an SU butterfly die.   The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye and Crate Paper plus I used Kraft and Barely Banana CS.    

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you will pop over to Fairy Fun Fridays to see what the rest of the team has for your inspiration.
