Dancing and Fluttering in the Breeze - daffodil yellow card

Good morning everyone, spring is on the way, the daffodils have pushed their way through the muddy ground and are flowering nicely, what a beautiful splash of colour to brighten the end of February and take us into March.  Here are a few DT samples using a beautiful daffodil yellow card which is on offer over at the Papermill.

Daffodil Yellow 240gsm card for the bargain price of

There is also a new competition starting today, two Jellypark vouchers are up for grabs in this competition - enter by commenting on the Papermill Facebook post here or leave a comment on the blog (see post here) - winners will be picked on the 14th March!

As Mother's Day and Easter are just around the corner this would be ideal for your Easter/Mother's day cards, here are a few ideas using this fabulous spring coloured card.

A cute bunny Easter card, image and sentiment from Pink Petticoat coloured with watercolour pencils.  A piece of daffodil yellow card was matted onto a white linen card blank, white linen and blue dotty paper from my stash were layered onto the card with the image and some stars.

Playing with distress inks, stencils and resist embossing I made this tag and card.  The flowers were made using the daffodil yellow card and a Tim Holtz tattered florals die, stamped and the edges coloured with DI and I used up the spare scraps of yellow card for the die cuts.

A new baby card using the daffodil yellow as an embossed background with contrasting pale blue and white.  Again the image is from Pink Petticoat,  coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with glossy accents.  All card from The Papermill of course.

My grandchildren have gone off to school and  have until Tuesday to catch up before they are back again, hope to get some commenting done today as I have been neglecting my wonderful followers and friends of late.

They are all very good but the tag and card, WOW!!! Love the colours, the stamp used and how you made these flowers so dimensional. I have that die and I should take inspiration from you and do more with it!
