I just love the cheery look of daffodils and they bring a smile with this sweet sentiment. I stamped the image of the daffodils with Pumice Stone distress ink so it would be a very subtle line. I then colored the image with Copic markers. The sentiment was inked with Versamark ink and then the green before stamping and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Don't you love the beautiful doily look at the top and bottom? I used Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles for both. I cut just about 1/4" off the bottom of the card and the cut the Romantic Rectangle long side and added it to the bottom of the card. I then cut the short edge of the rectangle and added it to the top of the card, making sure I got the beautiful corners on the card. I added yellow ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I hope it brings a smile to your face.

Here is one more card I made with the set! Thanks so much for looking!
