Another Challenge Has Sprung

I have found so many fun challenges at Flourishes ... the one that I made this card for is a color challenge to use grass green, robin egg blue, and daffodil yellow. And what better stamp to use than the Daffodil stamp from Flourishes "Calendar Set 1".  Love this stamp. I stamped it on white CS with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  Used Yellow Glaze pen by Sakura to highlight the petals. Cut out with Nesties Square die and cut a mat of yellow CS with Scallop Square die. Followed a sketch from Paper Pretties Challenge. Used Blue CS (from stash) embossed  with Cuttlebug EF Swiss Dots as the sky and Grass Green CS from GKD embossed with Cuttlebug EF Victoria as my grass.  Finished with sentiment on a banner stamped in Memento Bamboos Leaves Ink  with Flourishes stamps from "Spring Has Sprung" and "Birthday Pennant" sets.  I let the Daffodil be the star of this card.
In addition to the Flourishes Spring Has Sprung Challenge, I am entering these Challenges:
Crafty Catz Challenge: Use embossing.
Simon Says Stamp:   It's time for Spring colors or Easter creations.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit.
