Daffodils

Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers, as they signal the beginning of spring. We have some beautiful ones in full bloom at our house right now.



For my card, I stamped the background from Tin Types and heat embossed with white clear embossing powder. The daffodil was stamped, colored with Copics and cut out. I stamped the sentiment on the inside as the front was pretty full already.

Hope you are seeing the signs of spring where you are as well!

Thanks for looking,
Melissa
