Card Challenge

Today's card makes me thing of spring, although it sure doesn't look like spring in Indiana.
One of my favorite flower is a daffodil.  Heartfelt Creation has created the most gorgeous package of stamps with different size flowers and dies by Spellbinders to cut some of them.

I am selling Websters green and yellow trim now by the yard and I will soon be posting it.
It is so dainty and beautiful.  Doesn't it add a lot to this card?

One of my favorite dies from Spellbinders is the Lotus Pendant as I can do so many things with it.  This time I double layered it using a plain and a patterned paper.  I cut out a circle, then using the cut out part, trimmed it to make a square so it would act as a window.  I first thought I would but it on top of the flower, but after working with it decided I liked it best underneath.  What do you think?  I embossed with with Cuttlebug's Kassie Embossing Folder.  I sure do like that one!!!  And, with my Vagabond I get  very deep embossing on it. 

I didn't like the look of a daffodil stem, so I added some Fern from my Mega Fern Punch (more arriving today). 

I hope my card brings a smile to your face, because it makes you think of spring.

This is a beautiful card Joan and yes it brought a smile to my face - reminding me that spring WILL come. I am looking forward to when I'll have some time to do these challenges again.
I had to tell you the verse you quoted today is one of my favourite verses and it also brought a smile to my face as I read it. Thanks for the reminder of God's steadfast love and care for us.

This is just beautiful Joan. I agree, I like the picture frame on the bottom as well. Your ribbon is very pretty as well!

Your card is just beautiful Joan, and I'm trying VERY hard to put spring into my mind, but it's difficult when I look out the window and see a foot of snow that fell overnight! LOL Another inch is predicted for tomorrow, another inch on Saturday, and then next Wednesday, yet another major storm is in our forecast! I'll just keep staring at this pretty daffodil and keep dreaming:)

These Heartfelt Creations daffodils are so beautiful. I am so anxious for the snow to go way and see them in the garden. Your card is gorgeous and I love the challenge you gave us this week.
