A Host of Golden Daffodils

Today I decided to have a play with a colour I don't use very often.  Yellow.  I stamped Tilda Dressed Up with Archival ink onto watercolour paper and then watercoloured her with Stampin' Up inks (Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Terracota Intenso. Bashful Bue and Regal Rose) and added little orange bling to her flowers.  She was cut and matted using Oval Nestabilities.  The bg paper is from K&Co Tim Coffey Daffodil pad and I matted it onto green card.  I ran the bg green card through my Cuttlebug twice using my Swirls and Birds folder but it was a bit short so I got out my embossing tools and finished off the embossing.  I added paper flowers with button and ribbon centres and finally added green flourishes (QuicKutz die).
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Use Yellow
Allsorts - Blooming Blossoms
Stamptacular Sunday - Buttons, Bling and Bloom
Sparkles Forum - Springtime

I love yellow and I love daffodils! Beautiful! Fab embossing too :-) Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx

What a clever begger you are, fancy thinking to continue the embossing by hand when it's a touch too short!

Your Maggie is beautifully shaded and goes so well with the papers and embossing.

It was a pleasure finally meeting you yesterday. Hope you didn't have earache from listening to my gabbling for hours!

Wonderful card! I don't use yellow often either, I wonder why. Thank you for the awesome comment you left on my blog. I don't feel old enough to be a greadmother either, but my youngest turns 24 today! So I guess I am getting old, lol

Oh, I love the jewlery you have here.
