Spring daffodil love card with Winnie and Walter by Rachel Vass

100th post + Bright Floral Card using Winnie and Walter Addies Garden

Winnie and Walter

Happy Wednesday everyone! A day closer to the weekend, yay.

I can’t believe this is my 100th post!! Keep reading for giveaway details (now closed).

I have a beautiful new paper pad that I just couldn’t resist from American Crafts called Lovely Day.  I have so much patterned paper and I hate cutting it up.  Are you the same? Maybe there’s a support group I can join?

Anyway I did cut into a couple of the sheets for today’s card.  I also watercoloured some bright spring flowers from the gorgeous Winnie and Walter Addies Garden. I ink blended a dark black circle to my card base and added some water splatters. I die cut a circle from my patterned paper and also die cut a circle frame and layered all my pieces together. A liberal hand with clear wink of Stella and some sequins finish this card. I am so longing for spring!!!
