Spring is coming, and I've been playing around with PTI's Year of Flowers: Daffodil set - I love that big daffodil image!!!  On some of the cards, I coloured the flowers in with Copics (yes, I gave in at some point and bought a few, but we don't have the best working relationship...), on others, I tried some paper piecing.

This card is probably my favourite, and I'm going to enter it in a couple of challenges: firstly, Daring Cardmakers with "Jonquils and Daffodils for March" and secondly, A Passion for Papertrey with "Piece out, Man" (paper piecing).

I stamped the daffodil image on Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron patterned papers from Stampin' Up! and then carefully cut out the individual bits and assembled the flower.  Added a scallop edged Pumpkin Pie border to the bottom, with some linen thread and a button, stamped on a sentiment and inked liberally round all the edges - done!  Very warm and spring-y, and I like it :)

Here are some more daffodil cards:

Hope you enjoyed the splash of colour, thanks for stopping by!
