 It has been snowing at our house for several days now.  I keep hoping that Spring is just around the corner, but I think we will have winter weather for a while.

Today I have designed a card using Susan's Garden Pansy diesSusan Tierney-Cockburn has a video to show you steps for creating the pansy with her dies at this LINK.  Behind the pansies I added Impression Obsession Leafy Branch.  Pieces of the branch were cut off and glued under the flowers.

The yellow background was embossed with the Embossalicious (EF6-ELFME) folder.  A sweet friend sent me the beautiful Marianne die (LR0300).  Just above the pansies I die cut two of the Cheery Lynn "Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames".  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations.  

The two butterflies were die cut using the Memory Box, Precious Butterflies die. There are two butterflies in this set and each one is attached to a bow. I cut off the bows and sponged the butterflies with yellow and tan ink.  White pearls, colored with a yellow Copic marker,  were added to complete the card.

Hi Selma, I came across your website when I was struggling with making some daffodils out of cardstock. Wow! Love your website and am gradually working my way through it and very much enjoying it. I recently purchased the Spellbinders Iris dies and they have turned out beautifully and wanted daffodils to go with them. Thanks so much you have helped me no end. Keep up the lovely projects that you do. Loving today's card.
