Hello Classy Friends, Diane here today
with my card for this weeks challenge "Simply Yellow"!

I don't know what your favorite color is,
but it so happens, right now, at this moment, mine is yellow!!
It is such a happy color, don't you think?

Not only is yellow a favorite, but so are Daffodils.
I think they are one of the most gorgeous Spring flowers!

 I started by embossing a piece of yellow vellum
and topping it with a beautiful die cut from 
Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance.

I stamped a beautiful, what I call "center stage" Daffodil
from the JustRite Thank You Daffodil set.
After coloring with my Copics, I fussy cut it out
mounted it on my Fleur de Elegance die cut.

From the same set, I stamped, colored and fussy cut
a butterfly twice, mounted one on the other for a 3D effect
and added a bit of Stickles for some bling.

A bow was added, topped with a embellishment using

A sentiment was added, from the set  
which was embossed with 
Sparkle 'N Sprinkle Silver Fine Detail embossing powder.
From the same JustRite set, I used the butterfly and gave it
the same treatment as the other one,

Thank you for stopping by today!  Won't you join in our challenge with us?

I have always loved daffodils and your card is just beautiful! Love the texture, fussy cutting and dimension ... awesome & happy creation! Too bad it's raining or I'd go cut the couple daffodils blooming outside my front door and bring them in to enjoy. Thanks for the springtime fresh air feeling!
