The perfect subject for this time of year over at Penny Black Saturday being the challenge 42.
Gets you thinking flowers and freshness and new beginnings. So my last piece of paper with daffodils was just great for a starting point, so I trimmed around a portion of it to use just at the side of the card, which I had first covered with a piece of plainish yellow paper. Found this great Penny Black image among my box of coloured images which is slowly depleting now with all these challenges. It had been watercoloured...decided to cut around it using my Nestabilities curved rectangles and did one bigger to matt it, enclosing ribbon between the two layers for added interest.
To lift the paper I added bling to the hyacinth at the bottom and to the butterfly antennae in the way of sticky backed gemstones. Also dotted along the butterflies wings with Stickles glitter glue. The sentiment was added and the butterflies and tulip were coloured with Sakura pens.
