Winter Thaw

That's what the challenge is over at the Flourishes blog, with a chance to win the whole new February release!  Here is the inspiration picture:

Such a breath of springtime!  I loved the flowers, and my mind went on to remembering those brave little daffodils that usually bloom with snow all around them in so many of our recent springtimes.  Here is my submission:


I used these new flowers to try and simulate daffodils, by bending up the petals, and made up some floating clouds with the words from an older clear set of Spring word stamps.  To finish I added some twine, a felt flower and a button to anchor my sentiment. 

Supplies: blue cardstock, BoBunny double dot dp in yellow, orange, and green, Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art, CL272 All Occasion Messages, Versafine onyx black ink, Impression Obsession WP25 Spring, Colorbox Frost White ink, Hero Arts felt button and spring card button, white twine.

I'm also entering this into this month's Hero Arts challenge: Love and Friendship.
