Happy Easter Daffodils

Hello Sweet Friends and Happy Monday!  I trust your weekend was lovely and you found a bit of time for yourself.  Easter is fast approaching and I'm working on Easter cards; as usual I've waited till last minute **sigh.

I've had this Easter Stamp Set from Gina K. Designs for a couple of years now and only remember to use it at Easter time.  It's a shame because the Daffodils are so pretty and would make a lovely project for Spring; even Mother's Day.

I've colored the image using Prismacolor Pencils and tried to stay true to a traditional Daffodil color palette.  I was experimenting with different shades of green and prefer the medium tones that appear on each side of the image.

I thought a Clean and Simple theme was enough since the image is substantial. I've matted with a panel of black card and added enamel dots for added visual interest.  That completes the card and my post for today. 

Have a fantastic Monday and until next time, Happy Crafting!
