Daffodils for Mother

This week's colors for the Splitcoast Color Challenge are so bright and cheerful - Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive - they look like the tulips that I got as an Easter gift.  And the dessert is option is spring flowers...so this card came together easily!!

I stamped the tulips twice, cut out the front-most petals, slightly curled them and glued them back. Then I added a dab or Rock Candy distress stickles on the stamen.

Just gorgeous, Kim! Your shading is absolutely stunning on those flowers and the extra dimension on the petals is a beautiful touch. The little spot of baker's twine is such a sweet touch. Hope you had a fun Easter weekend! Hugs! :)

Love the tulips and the coloring. AND, thank you for the Copic charts. I'm a huge Stampin' Up fan and have recently started using copic markers. What a big help this is.
