Is It Spring Yet?

Today was so cold and now it is suppose to rain again.  I am so ready for warmer weather and spring.  I guess seeing my daffodils starting to pop up encouraged this new card.

The floral image is F1093 Jonquil and the lovely scene is K1130 Daffodil Scene, both from Impression Obsession’s Gary Robertson Collection.  I stamped both images with black Stazon ink and painted them with watercolors.  The scene was cut out with a Spellbinder octogonal die and I hand cut the flower image, then layered both on maroon cardstock.  I added a yellow scalloped octagon behind the scene and adhered it to a decorative, green cardstock.  This is then layered on maroon and then a light yellow card base.  The maroon strip at the bottom of the card is punched with a new Martha Stewart deep edge border punch and then I added a yellow ribbon strip and bow.  I used pop dots to attach the flower image.  Then I used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the two little butterflies and added three tiny yellow buttons to the bottom.
