Happy Daffodils

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Today is my friend Martha's birthday, and since I know she likes purple, I created this card for her using Basket Bunch:

Perfect Plum is a color I rarely use, so it was nice to break it out (my foam ink pad still had the cello wrapper on it!!) and create a pretty spring bouquet:

I stamped the flowers and leaves on thick white cardstock and colored them with an aquapainter and inks.  The basket was diecut from Kraft cardstock and mounted on a stitched oval.  Then it was mounted on some striped DSP.  Simple and easy!  Happy Birthday, Martha!

Have a blessed day!

So I'm not the only one who orders ink pads and doesn't open them til they are ready to be used :-) Cute card, cute photo!

So pretty! Love the daffodils!

Happy daffodils is right! They are just perfect for a birthday greeting and look great paired with the plum. It's not a color I use often either but I should after seeing your card today. Thanks for sharing!

LeAnne, this is really pretty. I don't own one single "spring" flower - like lilies, daffodils or tulips, so now this card leaves me needing to go buy, buy, buy!!

Oh such a sweet Spring card. When I was a Pioneer Girl leader at our church many years ago, my "name" was Daffodil;)
Wonderful picture of Dana and Cassidy. I love that look on Cassidy's face:)

This is gorgeous LeAnne - nothing nicer than a basket of spring flowers and this card combines two of my favourites - the colour purple and daffodils! So pretty and fresh.
