My Favorite Flower .....

.....Daffodils :)

I just love this stamp but unfortunately it has no name or manufacturer on the package! (I will endeavour to find out via good old Google, and let you know!)

I've stamped with Versamark and heat embossed before colouring with Whispers and a water brush. I then painted more Versamark onto the Daff heads and heat embossed those with Holographic powder. The panels were embossed in my Cuttlebug with the Swirls folder and more holographic powder heat embossed onto the yellow pieces.

I'm quite pleased with this card and think I'm going to give it to hubby for our Anniversary - Daffs were the flowers we had at our Wedding. It may be a bit on the feminine side - but at least it means I don't have to see it leave the house!

I'm entering this card for 'a few' challenges...

Cute Card Thursday - 'Blooming Gorgeous'
Saturday Spotlight - 'Let the Sunshine in' and/or mono yellow
Allsorts - 'Hearts & Flowers'
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - 'Summer in Winter'
Charisma Cardz - White on White (although I think it may have too much yellow on to count?)
Raise The Bar - Gift ....The little yellow flower was sent to me by Stephanie - Thanks :)

That's the most challenges I've ever got from 1 card! And to think I had a '1 card, 1 challenge' ethic before wonder I never used to manage to enter many!!!

(Edit...Blogger is REALLY playing up tonight! I've spent the last hour trying to upload my card to the challenge blogs!!! Will return tomorrow to get them all uploaded.....before I throw the bleedin' computer through the window!)
