CCMC245 Sketch Challenge

Today I used my Secret Garden stamp set again since it was sitting out.  It just now hit me that I could have used the matching die set to cut out my daffodil-like flowers, duh!  I wish I had used a different color ribbon on this card.  There seems to be too much yellow going on.  But I used Tombow liquid glue to attach the card front to the base card and it can't be changed now.  I embossed the flowers with clear embossing powder.  The little cups of the daffodils were made with the new 7/8" scallop punch using Very Vanilla cardstock, spritzed with diluted alcohol and made into a cup with the non-pointy end of my piercing tool.  I also used my aqua painter to color the inside with Daffodil Delight ink.  The greeting is from the Wishes Your Way. 


 
We are in the midst of spring here in San Antonio and the wildflowers are blooming.  They are not as spectacular this year since we didn't get much in the way of rain this past winter.  We were lucky enough to get some rain today.  It has been so dry here that we may be looking at severe water restrictions by the end of the summer.  We'll take every drop that we can get. See you again in a day or two.
