A Beautiful Daffodil!

Happy Friday!!! I have a wonderful card to share with you today! Just look at that lovely daffodil, it was drawn by our very own Glitterbabe, Stef Hughes!!! I feel so honored to be using her lovely image....she's sharing it as a FREEbie!!! Thanks so much Stef, you are so generous!!!

It makes a lovely card, don't ya think? It's colored with prisma pencils and brushed with yellow Pearl-Ex. I found these fun purple & gray digi papers yesterday @ Cajoline-scrap and wanted to use them! I used the sketch from Sketch & Stash, I love this classic kind of sketch, it worked out perfectly!

These are some of the challenges I played along with this time...
Sketch & Stash~the sketch and Stef's lovely daffodil
Stamp Something~fav sketch.
Danni's Flutterby Wed~a flower and flutter.
Alphabet chall~Y for yellow!

I hope you're having a wonderful Friday!!! We're having an absolutely gorgeous day here in PA, beautiful temps, sunshine and a light breeze! Perfect!

We saw flocks of geese starting their journey south and the trees are just starting to change!! Enjoy some photos of our country view!
