Daffodil Dreams!

Happy Tuesday!
We're starting a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown - Creative Borders!  This can be any type of border...just do what makes you happy!
For my card, I used a border punch that I have had forever.  I wanted to use a scallop lace type border punch but turns out, that one is broken...guess I used it too much :)

I started by trimming my card base way down.  I wanted to make this card be "off the edge" so I needed to be sure my base was small enough to accommodate for the height of the daffodils.  Then I set to stamping my flowers using the Daffodil Dreams set from Sunny Studio who is our fabulous sponsor this week!  I used a couple of inks from Lawn Fawn for my flowers, doing a little bit of second generation to get different shades.  Then to enhance the shadows a little bit, I brought in a few colored pencils to do some shading.  Not much, but just touches here and there and I think it really added some nice depth.

I chose a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh and stamped it in black and then clear embossed it.  Scattered a few clear sequins around the card and put little black dots in the centers.  I should have stamped my sentiment a little bit higher on the panel...there's just a big empty spot in the middle that I really don't like...but I wasn't starting over so oh well :)

I hope you will join us this week for our Creative Borders challenge!

Thanks for visiting! <3
