Spring Flowers

Welcome - and thank you for calling

I decided to use this daffodil tag again on this card - I think the fact that spring is showing her face here at the moment must be influencing me! 

The card was quite fast to make - I gold embossed the tag and scripture, and then rubbed Dandelion ink over the scripture to emphasis it, and painted the daffodils with Twinkling H2O's.

I then assembled the card using dp from the Prima Fairy Flowers paper stack, on which I had stamped and gold embossed the sentiment.

The lace layer was from my stash (it came from my late MIL), the  lace threaded through the hole on the tag was in some blog candy from Michelle. The tag was mounted on foam dots for dimension and some amber coloured rhinestones added and the card was done.
